LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — A trial date was set for the trial of a former Clark County official accused of killing a local journalist on Wednesday.
Robert Telles’ trial is scheduled for April 17 at 10:30 a.m. in Las Vegas District Court. Telles waived his right to a jury trial in his initial arraignment hearing, meaning the trial will be conducted by the judge alone.
Telles is accused of murdering Las Vegas journalist Jeff German outside of the reporter’s home.
On Tuesday, the Grand Jury released a 47-page indictment containing transcripts of 10 witness interviews, videos and photographs of the murder scene and surrounding area presented before jurors.
During a previous hearing, Clark County prosecutors told the judge that they don’t plan to seek the death penalty against Telles.
He is currently being held at the Clark County Detention Center without bail.
