FLINT, Mich. (AP) -- Mental-health issues still are unresolved in the case of a man charged with killing or seriously injuring nine people during a stabbing spree in the Flint area.
Elias Abuelazam's lawyer says an independent exam requested by the defense is not finished. The prosecution's expert has completed a report but it is sealed.
A Genesee County judge got an update Thursday and told both sides to return to court on May 26.
The issue is whether experts believe Abuelazam's mental health last summer could lead to an insanity defense. He's been ordered to trial in three fatal stabbings and six more attacks in which the victims survived.
No trial dates are set. Prosecutor David Leyton says the first murder trial likely would involve one of the two cases with DNA evidence.
