LAS VEGAS (AP) – A convicted panderer has been indicted on charges that could get him the death penalty in a car-to-car shooting that killed two women and critically wounded a man near the Las Vegas Strip.
A judge on Thursday set a May 19 arraignment in state court for Omar Jamal Talley on murder, attempted murder and multiple felony weapon charges in the Feb. 19 shooting.
The indictment avoided a Thursday preliminary hearing.
Police and prosecutors say an argument in a parking structure at the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood preceded the shooting that killed Melissa Mendoza and Jennifer Chicas and wounded Jerraud Jackson. They were from the San Francisco Bay Area.
The Clark County district attorney will decide in coming weeks whether the 30-year-old Tally will face the death penalty.
