Illinois Suspends Medical License of Doctor Accused in Omaha Murders

Anthony Garcia

CHICAGO (AP) -- Illinois officials have suspended the medical license of the doctor charged in the slayings of four people with ties to a Nebraska medical school that fired him from a residency program more than a decade ago.

The Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation says Thursday that it suspended Dr. Anthony Garcia's license for lying on his initial application and license renewal applications.

The Indiana doctor is accused of killing Creighton University pathologist Roger Brumback and his wife, Mary, in May at their home. He's also accused in the 2008 killings of 11-year-old Thomas Hunter, whose father William worked at the university, and his family's housekeeper, Shirlee Sherman.

Illinois granted Garcia a license in 2003. Regulators say they're suspending him for failing to disclose a history of professional problems.
