A prosecutor filed the first murder charge Monday arising from a stabbing spree in three states, promising to get a conviction of an Arab Christian man from Israel who has "terrorized our citizens."

Elias Abuelazam was charged in the death of 49-year-old Arnold Minor, who was stabbed in the chest and stomach on Aug. 2. He was also charged with four new counts of attempted murder tied to a stabbing spree that killed five men and injured nine in the state of Michigan.

Defense attorney Brian Morley said the new charges were expected and he's already received some evidence from authorities.

Abuelazam also is a suspect in two stabbings and a hammer attack in Virginia and a stabbing in Ohio.
