Elias Abuelazam, 33, attends an extradition hearing in Fulton County Superior Court on Friday in Atlanta. Abuelazam, an Israeli citizen, is suspected in several stabbing attacks in Michigan, Ohio and Virginia. And was also a suspect in a separate stabbing in Israel.

Authorities in Flint are searching for a victim of last summer's stabbing spree after he failed to appear in court.

Bill Fisher was supposed to testify Thursday at a hearing to determine if Elias Abuelazam goes to trial for attempted murder.

Meanwhile, in another case, Abuelazam was ordered to trial for the attempted murder of Antwione Marshall.

Four hearings were scheduled Thursday, all involving charges of attempted murder in and around Flint. Abuelazam is also charged with three murders.

Abuelazam was captured Aug. 11 in Atlanta while trying to fly to his native Israel. He's also charged with attempted murder in Toledo, Ohio, and is suspected in attacks in Leesburg, Va.

    Looks less like a murderer than an amoeba. Amazing what having only 2 brain cells does for you.
