LAS VEGAS (AP) - A Las Vegas judge postponed naming a lawyer for a 27-year-old ex-convict facing murder and other charges in the shooting death of a man in a vehicle outside a strip club.

A special Clark County public defender, David Schieck (SHEEK’) said Monday that he’s checking whether his office can represent Christopher Mallett.

Judge Diana Sullivan reset a hearing for Wednesday.

Mallett hasn’t been asked to enter a plea. He faces murder, robbery, burglary and weapon charges in the Jan. 11 shooting of 28-year-old Antonio Darrnell Logan outside the Crazy Horse III nightclub.

Las Vegas police say Mallett is a gang member who had a prior dispute with Logan.

Records show that Mallett served time in state prison on a December 2008 theft conviction in Las Vegas.
