Yesterday a Clark County judge delayed the capital murder trial for a man alleged to have killed three people on the Las Vegas Strip this past February. The delay is meant to accommodate another trial the defendant is slated for stemming from allegations of rape and the Nevada crime of kidnapping. There hasn't been a new trial date set yet.
The Nevada crime of kidnapping is divided into two degrees. First degree kidnapping occurs when a person willfully seizes a person with the intent to either hold the person for ransom, or for the purpose of committing rape, extortion, robbery, murder, or committing substantial bodily harm on the person. Second degree kidnapping comprises all other types of kidnapping.
