Murder Trial Set in 2009 Cop Killing
LAS VEGAS (AP) — Trial is set Nov. 10 for a 23-year-old accused gang member accused of gunning down an off-duty Las Vegas police officer during a botched robbery at the officer’s North Las Vegas home in November 2009.
A judge on Wednesday scheduled Prentice Marshal’s death penalty trial in the slaying of 30-year-old Officer Trevor Nettleton.
That’s seven weeks after a separate Sept. 22 death penalty trial for 25-year-old co-defendant Saul Williams Jr.
Co-defendants Quadrae Scott and Adrian Pena pleaded guilty in 2012 to lesser charges.
Both are now 22 and in prison, where Scott is serving 10 years to life and Pena is serving 15 to 50.
Brothers Michael Ferguson and Emmitt Ferguson were each sentenced in 2011 to one to 2 1/2 years in state prison as accessories in the case.
