Trial Set In Drai’s Killing

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A January 2015 date has been set for the death penalty trial of a 42-year-old ex-convict accused of killing a patron and wounding two employees at an after-hours Las Vegas Strip nightclub.

Benjamin Paul Frazier’s lawyer, Bob Beckett, told a state court judge on Wednesday that he’needs to review evidence and obtain medical and psychiatric evaluations before taking the case to a jury.

Beckett says Frazier has been seen by doctors in jail.

Prosecutors agreed to the date set by Clark County District Court Judge Elizabeth Gonzalez.

Frazier has pleaded not guilty to murder, battery and other charges in the Oct. 21 shooting at Drai’s After Hours at Bally’s hotel-casino.

Beckett argues that Frazier took antidepressants, anxiety and blood pressure medication and was drunk at the time of the shooting.
