OMAHA, Neb. — An Indiana doctor who was fired from a Nebraska medical school more than a decade ago has been arrested on suspicion of killing four people with ties to the school in two separate attacks five years apart.

Anthony Garcia was a medical resident at Creighton University when he was dismissed in 2001 for unspecified erratic behavior. He now stands accused in the killing of a pathology professor and his wife earlier this year, as well as the 2008 stabbings of another professor's son and housekeeper in a neighborhood near the home of billionaire Warren Buffett.

Garcia, who lives in Terre Haute, Ind., was arrested by Illinois State Police on Monday during a traffic stop in Union County, in southern Illinois. He was jailed without bond.
