Tamas Horvath told a Nevada judge on Wednesday he understands the 10 charges in an indictment handed up by a Clark County District Court grand jury. He could face decades in state prison if he is convicted.
The 40-year-old Horvath still uses a wheelchair after bring wounded and arrested Feb. 2 in a neighborhood several miles west of the Las Vegas Strip. He’s being held on $500,000 bail.
