A former doctor accused of killing four people with ties to Creighton University's Medical School has been found competent to stand trial.

A competency hearing for Anthony Garcia was held Friday in Douglas County District Court after he spent three months undergoing psychological evaluation at the Lincoln Regional Center.

His attorneys asked for the evaluation in February after becoming concerned about his mental state.

Garcia is charged with first-degree murder in the 2008 deaths of 11-year-old Thomas Hunter, the son of Creighton University pathologist William Hunter,  and the family's housekeeper.  He is also charged in the deaths last Mayof Creighton pathologist Roger Brumback and his wife Mary.

Authorities say Garcia was motivated by revenge for being fired in 2001. He has pleaded not guilty.
