Indiana doctor arrested in Nebraska killings

(Continued)

OMAHA, Neb. —

Allison Motta, a Chicago-area attorney who said she was contacted by Garcia's family to represent him, declined Tuesday to discuss the case with The Associated Press as she was traveling to southern Illinois.

A hearing to address Garcia's extradition was scheduled for Wednesday.

It was unclear where Garcia finished his medical residency after being fired from Creighton.

Since 2003, Garcia has held medical licenses in California, Illinois and Indiana, but his temporary Indiana license expired in January, according to public records.

Neighbors of the Brumbacks were still digesting the news of Garcia's arrest.

"It saddens us to think that something like this could happen, and no one saw anything," said Carol Fettin, who lives three houses down from the Brumback home. "We racked our brains, trying to come up with something."

Court records show Garcia filed for bankruptcy in 2005, saying he was more than $81,000 in debt. The only assets he listed were about $1,000 in cash and a 2000 Honda CR-V.

One of the Brumbacks' three children, Darryl, said the family had no comment about the arrest. A male relative of Sherman's also declined to speak. The Hunter family didn't respond to a phone message seeking comment.
