Man accused of shooting teen at house party appears in court

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- The 20-year-old man accused of murdering a local teenager last year during a house party was in a Las Vegas courtroom this morning.

Police say that Demetrius Black fired the stray bullet that killed 17-year-old Betty "Jay" Pinkey.

Detectives say that physical evidence connects him with the murder weapon.

Because of a possible conflict of interest with his assigned public defender, Black's court appearance was rescheduled to May 23.
