Omaha, NE - For the first time since Anthony Garcia's arrest, Douglas County Attorney Don Kleine gave details on the charges.
"With 4 counts of 1st degree murder and 4 counts of use of a weapon, 3 a knife and 1 a gun."
Garcia is charged for the 2008 double homicide in Dundee and the Brumback double homicide this May together. Once back in Omaha, Garcia will stay in the Douglas County Jail until his first court appearance.
Kleine says in this case, the death penalty is a possibility.
"There's an aggravator of committing more than murder of the time you commit these murders, there's an aggravating circumstance in regards to concealing the identity of a person when you commit a murder or the crime itself and there's especially heinous aggravator."
And when asked if Garcia had plans to target more people. He said, "you know I'm not gonna comment about that, that's a good question and we'll see where the evidence leads us in that regard."
Garcia is expected to get to Omaha early next week. He'll be held in the Douglas County jail until his first court appearance, on Monday or Tuesday.
