LAS VEGAS — The Latest on charges against a Nevada homicide suspect who escaped from police custody on Friday and was arrested again on Tuesday (all times local):
A judge in North Las Vegas set bail at $1.62 million for a Nevada homicide suspect who was re-arrested four days after authorities say he broke a set of handcuffs and escaped from a police office.
That brought the total bail for Alonso Perez to more than $1.7 million in cases in two cities.
Perez appeared by video on Thursday from the Clark County jail, where he’s also being held on criminal charges in a Las Vegas shooting case.
Minutes earlier, a judge in Las Vegas set his bail at $100,000 pending a preliminary hearing on domestic battery, assault and shooting into a building charges.
In North Las Vegas, the 25-year-old Perez faces 10 felony charges including murder, shooting into a building, escape, auto theft, robbery and conspiracy.
He’s accused of fatally shooting 31-year-old Mohammed Robinson on Aug. 27 outside a North Las Vegas fast-food restaurant, and of escaping from police custody Sept. 2.
He wasn’t asked to enter a plea.
His next court date is Sept. 22 in the Las Vegas case.
A Las Vegas judge cited community safety and increased bail to $100,000 for a Nevada homicide suspect who was re-arrested four days after authorities say he broke a set of handcuffs and escaped from a police interviewing room.
