Anthony Garcia to be evaluated for competency to stand trial

Feb 7, 2014

A man accused of killing four people in Omaha will be evaluated to determine if he’s competent to stand trial.

Judge Duane Dougherty granted a competency request during a hearing Friday for Anthony Garcia. Garcia is accused in the 2008 murders of Shirlee Sherman and Thomas Hunter in Dundee, and the 2013 killings of Dr. Roger Brumback and his wife, Mary.

Garcia will be evaluated at the Lincoln Regional Center. It’s not known as this point how long that will take. Preliminary and pretrial hearings for Garcia were continued.
