UPDATE: Omaha judge says Garcia hearing to be open

OMAHA, Neb. — A judge won’t close a preliminary hearing for an Indiana man charged with killing four people with ties to an Omaha medical school.

The preliminary hearing for Anthony Garcia is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. today. The judge decided earlier in the morning to deny a request by attorneys for Garcia. The attorneys argued that news coverage of the preliminary hearing would hurt Garcia’s right to a fair trial.

Garcia, who has been living in Terre Haute, is being held without bond on four counts of first-degree murder. Police say he killed the 11-year-old son of Creighton pathologist William Hunter and the family’s housekeeper in 2008, as well as Creighton University pathologist Roger Brumback and his wife in May.

Brumback and Hunter had fired Garcia from the Creighton pathology program in 2001.
