Nevada Supreme Court Dismisses Las Vegas Murderer's Appeal

CARSON CITY (AP) - The Nevada Supreme Court has dismissed another appeal from death row inmate Timothy Redmen, convicted of murdering and mutilating a Las Vegas man and tossing his body into a trash bin.

The court rejected arguments by Redmen that he had ineffective legal counsel and that trial errors warranted a reversal of his death sentence for the murder of Max Biederman in 1990 during a robbery.

According to court records, Redmen had the victim's van and other property when he was arrested in Idaho, and admitted he pulled a gun on Biederman, demanded money and took the cash after the killing.

Biederman was shot at least three times, his face was mutilated with a wrought iron railing and his hands were cut off in an effort to prevent authorities from identifying the victim.

Redmen lost a previous appeal to the high court in 2000.
