LAS VEGAS (AP) — Prosecutors brought a murder charge against a 50-year-old woman accused of stabbing a young girl to death in an undeveloped Las Vegas-area housing tract and later slashing a casino co-worker while that woman dealt blackjack at a Las Vegas Strip resort.
Brenda Stokes Wilson’s lawyer, Tony Liker, told a judge Wednesday that Ms. Stokes Wilson will plead not guilty to all six charges now pending against her in the Dec. 21 death of 10-year-old Jade Morris and the attack on 44-year-old Joyce Rhone at the Bellagio.
A judge set an evidence hearing for March 28 and ordered Ms. Wilson held without bail.
