A doctor pleaded not guilty Tuesday to killing four people in revenge for his dismissal from a residency program at a Nebraska hospital.

Dr. Anthony Joseph Garcia, 40, is charged with four counts of first-degree murder for the killing of 11-year-old Thomas Hunter and his family’s housekeeper, Shirlee Sherman in March 2008, and the killing of Dr. Roger Brumback and his wife Mary this past May.

In 2001, Dr. Brumback and Thomas’s father, Dr. William Hunter, fired Garcia from his residency at Creighton University for “unprofessional behavior.”

Garcia attempted to complete his residency in Illinois and Louisiana during the years 2003 to 2008. Two weeks before the first two murders, Garcia’s application for a Louisiana medical license was rejected, in part because he had failed to complete other residency programs, theChicago Tribune reports.
