LAS VEGAS (AP) — A former Las Vegas Strip performer who says he killed his ex-girlfriend in self-defense tried to fend off a prosecutor’s suggestions that what he really wanted was to get rid of a former girlfriend whose claim she was pregnant endangered his new romance.
Jason Omar Griffith found himself trapped Monday when prosecutor Marc DiGiacomo asked what he did with Deborah Flores Narvaez’s phone after her death at his home in December 2010.
GPS put the phone at or near the New York-New York resort, where Griffith says he went to meet his new girlfriend, a dancer at the Cirque du Soleil show “Zumanity.”
Griffith is standing trial on a murder charge in the death of Flores.
She was a dancer in the racy “Fantasy” revue at the Luxor hotel-casino.
