LAS VEGAS (AP) — A prosecutor in Las Vegas is comparing two men accused of killing a high school student who refused to let go of his iPad to wild animals ambushing a weak victim.

Prosecutor Robert Daskas made his comments before a judge who on Thursday ordered 21-year-old Michael Samuel Solid and 18-year-old Jacob "Jake" Dismont held without bail pending a June 7 preliminary hearing.

Solid and Dismont are accused of conspiracy, murder and robbery in the May 16 death of 15-year-old Marcos Vicente Arenas several blocks from Bonanza High School. Each could face life in prison if convicted.

Solid's lawyer, David Schieck declined comment outside court.

Dismont's attorney, Jeff Banks, didn't immediately respond to messages.

Police call the case a fatal example of grab-and-run personal computer thefts sometimes dubbed "Apple picking."
