CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - The Nevada Supreme Court is rejecting
appeals of the convictions of a former North Las Vegas strip club
owner and his son in the slaying of a fired former club employee in
2005.

The Las Vegas Sun reports that 61-year-old Luis Hidalgo Jr. and 32-year-old Luis Hidalgo III argued there was insufficient evidence to support their second-degree murder convictions and 20 years to life sentences in the slaying of Timothy Hadland.

Hadland was shot in the head and his body was found along an
isolated road near Lake Mead with fliers for Hidalgo's Palomino
Club scattered around.

Prosecutors told jurors Hadland was killed because he spoke
badly about the club to others.

Convicted triggerman Kenneth Counts was convicted of conspiracy
and sentenced to eight to 20 years in prison.
