OMAHA, Neb. (AP) – An ex-exotic dancer says one of her former customers now on trial for the deaths of four people tied to an Omaha medical school told her he had killed “an old woman and a young boy.”

The woman’s testimony came Thursday in the first-degree murder trial of Anthony Garcia. Prosecutors believe Garcia’s words to the stripper were a confession of the 2008 stabbing deaths of 11-year-old Thomas Hunter and his family’s housekeeper, 57-year-old Shirlee Sherman.

The boy was the son of Creighton University School of Medicine faculty member, Dr. William Hunter. Garcia is also charged in the 2013 killings of another Creighton faculty member, Dr. Roger Brumback, and his wife, Mary.

Authorities believe Garcia was motivated by his rage at being fired in 2001 from a Creighton residency program.
