Michigan appeals court affirms conviction, sentence of man blamed for Flint serial stabbings

The Michigan appeals court has affirmed the conviction of a man accused in a series of fatal stabbings in Flint in 2010.

The court on Wednesday found no grounds to overturn the results in the first-degree murder trial of Elias Abuelazam (EE'-lee-us ah-BOOL'-ah-zahm). He was convicted of killing Arnold Minor.

Abuelazam was charged with three murders and six attempted murders. But Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton has said there will be no additional trials because Abuelazam already is locked up with a no-parole sentence.

The Israel native was living with an uncle in Flint in 2010 when he was linked to the stabbing of 14 people; five died.

The victims were attacked by a man who asked for directions. Abuelazam told experts that he was under the spell of demons.
