Aug. 27, 2014
(Flint, MI) -- An alleged serial killer wants to be deported to his native Israel to face trial on charges of attempted murder. Elias Abuelazam was convicted of murder in Michigan in 2013. He is accused of killing two other people and trying to murder six more. However, Abuelazam has filed a federal lawsuit seeking to be deported. He claims the federal government hasn't responded to his requests to be returned to Israel. The 37-year-old has also written to Israeli authorities to ask them to extradite him.
