The trial for a former Indiana doctor charged in one of Nebraska’s biggest murder mysteries is now underway.

Police say two murders in 2008 and two in May of this year are connected. Prosecutors say they believe Anthony Garcia is the man behind the crime.

At each murder scene, knives were missing from the kitchen and victims had similar stab wounds.

An exotic dancer believed to be a key witness will also testify, saying Garcia admitted to her that he killed, “a small boy, and an old lady.”

The defense maintains their client’s innocence.

Garcia was a former pathology student in 2001. He was fired at the time for inappropriate behavior toward a doctor at a conference.

Prosecutors say the murders were his revenge.
