New murder attempt charge for Abuelazam

By the Associated Press

Authorities in Michigan have added a new charge of attempted murder against a man accused in a serial stabbing spree.

Elias Abuelazam now is charged with three murders and six attempted murders in Genesee County, Mich., as well as an attempted murder in Toledo, Ohio.

The new charge filed Tuesday accuses Abuelazam of stabbing a victim on July 12 in Burton, which is located near Flint, Mich.

Fourteen people were stabbed in the Flint area last spring and summer, and five died.

Abuelazam is also suspected but not charged in similar attacks in Leesburg, Va.

He's held in jail without bond. Defense lawyer Brian Morley had no comment.
