Flint's suspected serial stabber could be connected to another killing in Virginia.

Reports say police in Leesburg, Virginia are looking at Elias Abuelazam in the 2009 death of Jammie Lane.

Lane was found stabbed to death inside his home. Police say Abuelazam lived on the same street at the time.

Right now, Abuelazam is serving a life setence in the murder of Arnold Minor in Flint. Abuelazam never took the stand in his own defense at any time during the trial in Minor's muder.

Abuelazam's defense lawyer says he had "bizarre delusions" that "evil forces directed him to harm others."

He's also accused of killing four others along with injuring nine people in a crime spree in 2010.

Charges in those cases were dismissed after Abuelazam was sentenced in the murder of Arnold Minor.
