Last week a Nevada murder charge was dismissed against thirty-five-year-old California pastor Robert Cox in anticipation of a grand jury indictment in the near future. Cox is suspected of causing the death of a fifty-five-year-old man during an alleged altercation last year outside Four Kegs on Jones and the I-95. The victim languished in Summerlin Hospital Medical Center for months before dying.
The incident took place while Cox participated in a ministry outreach trip in Las Vegas with members of the Place or Refuge Church of Manteca. The victim reportedly approached the group in the parking lot, and a fight broke out. The victim fell backwards and sustained severe head trauma. Authorities ruled his death a homicide because the initial cause of his injuries was the alleged argument.
Cox claims his story of what happened that night never changed, and that he is trusting God as the legal process plays itself out. He and his wife are hoping to adopt more children once the case is over.
