Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Residents of a local senior community are left waiting for justice as one of their neighbors sits behind bars for allegedly killing another.
The crime shocked the community. A 74-year-old woman was found beaten to death in her apartment. And, an 80-year-old man was arrested one year later for her murder.
Bobby Warren is accused of killing Connie Wiesner.
Wiesner was found murdered on Jan. 9, 2010, at the Arthur McCant Manor senior living facility, on Eastern near Washington Avenue.
Warren's trial was supposed to begin Tuesday, but it's been put on hold until January.
According to the police report, Warren was the last person seen with Wiesner. The report also says Wiesner's DNA was found under Warren's fingernails.
Neighbors say Warren and his wife lived down the hall from Wiesner and often acted as caregivers.
The couple was also known for helping out others in the complex to earn extra cash. They would run errands, supply medicine, etc.
Now, neighbors question if the man they trusted was a criminal with an ulterior motive.
Police discovered that Warren took a large sum of money from his bank account and took a bus to San Diego right after Wiesner's body was discovered.
Warren allegedly bought the bus ticket using a different name and tried to sell some of Wiesner's belongings at a pawn shop in San Diego.
Warren does have a criminal record. He served time in prison for a 2003 burglary.
