Serial Killer Targeted In Poisoning Attempt

A Genesee County jail inmate has been accused of trying to kill suspected serial killer Elias Abuelazam. 

Prosecutor David Leyton says an inmate tried to put an oven cleaner in Abuelazam’s food some time ago.  The suspect’s name isn’t being released at this time. 
Attempted poisoning can carry a penalty of up to 10 years in prison.
Abuelazam faces charges of murdering three people and trying to murder five others in a series of stabbings in the Flint area.  He’s also charged with attempted murder in Toledo and suspected in similar attacks in Leesburg, Va., where he once lived.
Abuelazam was arrested in Atlanta in August while trying to fly to his native country, Israel.
