LAS VEGAS (AP) — A court date was postponed for an ex-convict who is expected to plead not guilty to charges that could get him the death penalty in a car-to-car shooting that killed two California women and critically wounded a man last February near the Las Vegas Strip.
Court officials said Thursday that a judge reset Omar Jamal Talley’s arraignment for Tuesday to allow time to determine if Talley’s current lawyer will continue to represent him.
Defense attorney William Skupa didn’t immediately respond to messages.
Talley faces murder, attempted murder and felony weapon charges in the Feb. 19 shooting that police and prosecutors say followed argument in a parking structure at the Miracle Mile Shops at the Planet Hollywood resort.
Talley told police following his arrest that he was drunk and high on marijuana and didn’t recall leaving the parking garage.
