Hearing set for Las Vegas strip club slaying defendant

CREATED Feb 28, 2014

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- A judge in Las Vegas scheduled a Monday hearing to appoint an attorney to represent a 27-year-old ex-convict facing murder and other charges in the shooting death of a man in a vehicle outside a strip club.

Christopher Mallett made an initial court appearance Friday on murder, robbery, burglary and weapon charges in the Jan. 11 shooting of 28-year-old Antonio Darrnell Logan outside the Crazy Horse III nightclub.

A public defender, Christy Craig, says her office needs time to check whether it can be assigned to Mallett's case.

Mallett hasn't been asked to enter a plea.

Las Vegas police say he's a gang member who had a prior dispute with Logan.

Records show that Mallett served time in state prison on a December 2008 theft conviction in Las Vegas.
