LAS VEGAS (AP) - A 36-year-old ex-convict is due for arraignment Monday following his arrest in what police are calling a double homicide southeast of downtown Las Vegas.

Marcial Casarez is due in Las Vegas Justice Court on murder charges in the Nov. 16 slayings of Jamel Colbert and his girlfriend, Shelby Taylor Robinson.

Casarez was being held at the Clark County jail following his arrest Wednesday.

It wasn’t clear Sunday if he has a lawyer.

The Clark County coroner says 32-year-old Colbert and 21-year-old Robinson were each shot multiple times.



Colbert was found on Ballard Drive and Robinson was found in a vehicle on Fremont Street.

Records show that Casarez served at least three prison terms in Nevada since 2004 for crimes including attempted burglary, receiving stolen vehicles and methamphetamine possession for sale.
