LAS VEGAS (AP) - Trial has been postponed for a Nevada ex-convict accused of trying to hire a hit man from his jail cell to kill a state judge, a prosecutor and a police detective.
Clark County District Court Judge Douglas Herndon cited scheduling conflicts Thursday and pushed trial Nov. 3 for 42-year-old Daimon Devi Hoyt.
Hoyt also uses the name Daimon Monroe. He has pleaded not guilty to charges he offered to pay a fellow inmate at the Clark County jail $10,000 each to kill Judge Michelle Leavitt, prosecutor Sandra
DiGiacomo and police Detective Bradley Nickell.
Hoyt is being held on more than $3 million bail in several unrelated cases on charges ranging from burglary and theft to conspiracy and sexual assault with a minor.
He faces up to life in prison as a habitual offender.
