LAS VEGAS (AP) — A 42-year-old ex-convict has pleaded not guilty to charges that could get him the death penalty in a shooting that killed a patron wounded two employees at an after-hours Las Vegas Strip nightclub.
Benjamin Paul Frazier pleaded not guilty Wednesday in Clark County District Court to murder, attempted murder, battery and weapon charges in the pre-dawn Oct. 21 shooting at Drai's After Hours at Bally's hotel-casino.
Prosecutor Giancarlo Pesci said a decision could be made Wednesday whether to seek the death penalty.
Frazier's lawyer, Bob Beckett, says Frazier doesn't remember anything about the shooting.
Police said Frazier disputed a $30 cover charge before pulling a .38-caliber revolver, wounding club doorman Robert Farias and security guard Anthony Guerrero, and killing Kenneth Brown when he tackled Frazier.
