OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - A former doctor accused of killing four people with ties to an Omaha medical school told a judge he doesn’t want the Chicago attorney who was removed from his defense team reinstated.

Anthony Garcia wrote a letter to Douglas County District Judge Gary Randall that was filed Thursday.

Garcia says he doesn’t want Alison Motta reinstated despite the fact his legal team has asked the Nebraska Supreme Court to order that.

Randall removed Motta from the case after she made public comments days before Garcia’s trial was to begin that violated ethical rules and could have swayed a jury.

Garcia has pleaded not guilty to four counts of first-degree murder. Prosecutors say he was motivated by revenge over professional grudges, including his being fired from Creighton University’s pathology department.
