Utah Man Accused Of Murder In Las Vegas

AP – Authorities say a Utah man is in custody on accusations that he beat a Florida man to death inside a Las Vegas Strip casino.

Police say the men were tourists and didn’t know each other before the altercation.

Las Vegas police homicide Lt. Lewis Roberts tells The Associated Press that two men argued in a restroom shortly before the slaying at about 12:45 a.m. Wednesday at O’Sheas Las Vegas Casino.

Roberts says the two men went to a lobby area, where one punched the other, killing him.

The men’s names weren’t immediately made public.

Roberts says police are still investigating what sparked the altercation.

Police Lt. Jeff Whitehead says homicide detectives are questioning possible witnesses and reviewing casino surveillance videotapes.
