The man accused in the slaying of a dancer on the Vegas Strip has pleaded not guilty to a charge of murder.  A November trial has been set for 32-year-old Jason “Blu” Griffith, who remains held without bail at the Clark County Detention Center.  Prosecutors claim Griffith killed 31-year-old Debora Flores Narvaez, dismembered her body, and tried to hide the remains in cement-filled tubs at his home in December.  Flores Narvaez, who was a performer at the Luxor hotel’s show “Fantasy,” was reported missing after she didn’t show up for a performance.  The district attorney’s office is still looking into whether to seek the death penalty against Griffith.  His roommate, Louis Columbo, allegedly helped Griffith hide the victim’s body.  Authorities say Colombo admitted his involvement in exchange for leniency.  He has not been charged, and his case is still under investigation.
