Court Action Stalls In Serial Stabbing Case

Play associated audio

Police in Flint, Mich., are searching for a victim of last summer's stabbing spree after he failed to appear in court. The man standing trial in the case is also suspected in attacks in Leesburg, Va.

Bill Fisher was supposed to testify today at a preliminary examination in Michigan to determine if Elias Abuelazam goes to trial for attempted murder. Meanwhile, in another case, Abuelazam was ordered to trial for the attempted murder of Antwione Marshall.

Four hearings are scheduled Thursday, all involving charges of attempted murder in and around Flint. Abuelazam is also charged with three murders.

Abuelazam is suspected of a series of stabbings in Flint and surrounding communities this past summer that left a total of five men dead and nine others seriously injured. He is also a suspect in similar attacks in Northern Virginia and Ohio that left four others wounded.

Abuelazam was captured Aug. 11 in Atlanta while trying to fly to his native Israel.
