Second hearing set for suspect in Michigan killings

Serial killing suspect Elias Abuelazam agreed in an Atlanta court Friday to be sent back to Michigan to face murder charges but will have a chance to change his mind because his lawyer was not present at the hearing.

The judge has scheduled a second session for later in the day.

Abuelazam is suspected of slashing 18 victims in three states, killing five of them.

    Killing is wrong

    Need to start an office pool on how long this guy lasts in the Michigan prison system. My guess would be about ten minutes. Every black guy in there is going to be after him. The white guys won't protect him because he's not white. La Familia probably won't have anything to do with him either, he probably doesn't know a word of spanish. The guards will most likely be paid off to look the other way. Just a fine boy from a fine family, RIGHT. He's a dead man already under a death sentence.
