Dr. Anthony Garcia lived in Indiana, but now is in Douglas County, being held without bond for the murders of four people in Omaha.

"It's four first-degree murders, the nature of the changes, he's not from here and safety risk," Douglas Co. Attorney Don Kleine said.

Garcia was officially charged with four counts of murder and four other felonies.

Police believe he was made about being fired from Creighton University in 2001 and the killings were revenge.

A professor and his wife were murdered in May. Another professor's son and their housekeeper were killed in 2008.

But Garcia's team isn't swayed.

 "Everything is circumstantial we don't have any evidence of him at any house. We have him in the city of Omaha essentially and owning a similar type weapon and that's about all there is," his attorney, Bob Motta Sr. said.

Today the judge granted the team more access to Garcia because communication has been difficult.

They say they have to talk through a glass window, making it impossible to give Garcia paperwork. Security is also keeping an eye on Garcia at all times.

He is segregated and not in contact with any other inmates.

"It's reflective of the community's fear of him and want for punishment," his attorney, Alison Motta said.
