Prosecution plans being set in Nevada killings of 4 people
RENO, Nev. (AP) — Nevada prosecutors are set to announce their plans for the prosecution of a 19-year-old El Salvadoran immigrant identified as the prime suspect in four killings.
Wilber Ernesto Martinez-Guzman has been jailed since his arrest more than a week ago. He was charged Thursday with possessing weapons and selling jewelry belonging to several victims.
Prosecutors say they’ll announce their prosecution plans at a 12 p.m. news conference on Monday. Authorities have said Martinez-Guzman was in the U.S. illegally.
A sheriff’s investigative report obtained by The Associated Press says Martinez-Guzman admitted killing a Reno couple, using a handgun he said he stole earlier from their home.
The report filed with a judge says the gun is also believed to have been used to kill two women in the town of Gardnerville.
