Fresh Charge Filed In Serial Stabbings Probe 11-23-2010

Authorities in Flint have added a new charge of attempted murder against a man accused of a serial stabbing spree.
Elias Abuelazam now is charged with three murders and six attempted murders in Genesee County, Mich., as well as an attempted murder in Toledo, Ohio.
The new charge filed Tuesday accuses Abuelazam of stabbing Antoine Jackson in Burton, near Flint, on July 12.
Abuelazam is also suspected but not charged in similar attacks in Leesburg, Va.
He's held in jail without bond. Defense lawyer Brian Morley had no comment.
According to the police investigation, witnesses spotted Jackson rolling around in the grass after 1 a.m. near Saginaw St. and Jolson Avenue in Burton. Police and paramedics who were dispatched to the scene discovered Jackson severely injured with multiple stab wounds.
Abuelazam is suspected of a series of knife 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 stabbings in Virginia and Ohio that left four others wounded.
Abuelazam is being held in the Genesee County jail with no bond.
