(Las Vegas, KXNT)–the arraignment of the defendant in the February shooting and crash that killed three people on the Las Vegas Strip was delayed Monday morning until next week.

Procedural problems evidently forced the postponement of Ammar Harris on various charges, including murder.

The 27-year-old Harris could face the death penalty in the Feb. 21 carnage on the Strip, although prosecutors haven’t made that decision yet.

The shooting killed a man driving a Maserati sports car that then slammed into a taxi that burst into flames. Two people in the taxi were killed.

Harris was arrested in Los Angeles, and is now being held without bail at the Clark County jail.

The arraignment is now scheduled for a week from today, May 13.
