Inmate tried poisoning Abuelazam: Official

By The Associated Press

The Genesee County prosecutor's office says a jail inmate has been charged with trying to poison serial killing suspect Elias Abuelazam.

Prosecutor David Leyton tells the Flint Journal an inmate tried to put an oven cleaner in Abuelazam's food.

Leyton says it happened some time ago and he isn't revealing the suspect's name. Attempted poisoning can carry a penalty of up to 10 years in prison.

Abuelazam faces charges of murdering three people and trying to murder five others for a series of stabbings in the Flint area. He's also charged with attempted murder in Toledo, Ohio, and suspected in similar attacks in Leesburg, Va., where he once lived.

Abuelazam was arrested in Atlanta on Aug. 11 while trying to fly to his native country, Israel.
