A man accused in a murder last week was charged with severely beating up another man a few years ago, but the case was dismissed.
In the latest case, Louie Bena-videz, 54, was charged with an open count of murder and tampering with evidence in the death of Kevin Duran, 32, 814 Chavez St.
Shortly after 9 p.m. Friday, Las Vegas police received a call about a shooting at Duran’s house. Duran was taken to the hospital by others, and he died soon after.
Police Chief Gary Gold said his department was trying to determine the motivation behind the shooting.
