Elias Abuelazam Found Guilty of Murderon May 23, 2012 in Alleged Serial Killers by Brian Combs
After only two hours and 23 minutes of deliberation and voting, a Flint, Michigan jury found Elias Abuelazam guilty of the murder of Arnold Minor.
Prosecutors showed that Arnold’s blood was found within Abuelazam’s Chevy Blazer, and on his tennis shoes and jeans. Four victims who survived attacks described Abuelazam as their assailant.
The defense tried to show that Abuelazam was legally insane at the time of the attacks. A psychiatrist testified that Abuelazam is a paranoid schizophrenic, and was compelled to commit violent acts by what he believed were “evil forces”.
Three prosecution psychiatrists testified that Abuelazam was not insane.
Abuelazam has been charged with three additional counts of murder, and six counts of assault with intent to murder.
