Mich. hearing for stabbings suspect

A Flint prosecutor says he anticipates more charges in September against a man accused of one stabbing and suspected in 13 others.

Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton spoke to reporters Tuesday after a brief court hearing for Elias Abuelazam. The 33-year-old defendant stayed in jail and did not attend.

Abuelazam is charged with attempted murder in just one case. Five men were killed during a series of stabbings in the Flint area.

Defense lawyer Brian Morley received nearly 200 pages and a CD as evidence in the attempted murder case. The next court hearing is Sept. 21.

Abuelazam was arrested Aug. 11 in Atlanta while awaiting a flight to his native Israel. He is suspected in two stabbings and a hammer attack in Virginia and a stabbing in Ohio.
