Man Accused in Las Vegas Bombing Pleads Guilty in False ID Case

A Panamanian accused of planting a deadly bomb outside a Las Vegas Strip resort pleaded guilty today to a misdemeanor false identification charge.

A Las Vegas justice of the peace sentenced 31-year-old Omar Rueda-Denvers to 10 days in jail.

That ensured that Rueda-Denvers would remain in Clark County jail pending an appearance tomorrow (Tuesday) on charges including murder and attempted murder in the May seventh bombing outside the
Luxor hotel-casino.

Police say a tangle of romantic relationships involving a group of illegal immigrants provided the motive for the slaying of 24-year-old Willebaldo Dorantes Antonio.

Police and family members say Dorantes Antonio was dating Rueda-Denvers' ex-girlfriend and the mother of his child.

A 27-year-old Nicaraguan construction worker -- Porfirro Duarte Herrera -- was also arrested in the bombing plot.

Right now, he's held on charges of being an alien in possession of a firearm. But he's expected to face other charges.
