Anthony Garcia trial
Charges: Anthony Garcia was charged with four counts of first-degree murder in the March 2008 deaths of Thomas Hunter, 11, and Shirlee Sherman, 57; and in the May 2013 deaths of Dr. Roger and Mary Brumback, both 65. He was convicted in October 2016.
Prosecutors: Alleged Garcia killed as revenge for his firing from Creighton University Medical Center by Hunter's dad, Dr. William Hunter, and Dr. Brumback.
Defense: Said there actually were five murders. The November 2007 killing of Joy Blanchard bore similarities to the four killings and the FBI investigated the possibility that they were all connected. (Another man has been charged in the Blanchard case.)
