(CBS Las Vegas) A Las Vegas couple has been indicted on murder and conspiracy charges in the slaying of an apartment owner whose cut-marred body was found in a garment box.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that 20-year-olds Anthony Stiger and Melanie Costantini also were indicted on one count each of armed robbery and burglary in the slaying of 58-year-old Harold Myles Shilberg. They could face the death penalty.
The indictment handed up Wednesday moves the case to state court. An evidentiary hearing that was scheduled Monday is canceled.
Arraignment was scheduled Jan. 4.
Stiger and Costantini were arrested Nov. 14 in Southern California after Shilberg’s body was found Nov. 9 outside an apartment building on East Fremont Street in Las Vegas.
