2 to enter pleas in Vegas Strip elevator stabbing
LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Defense attorneys say two men will seek a quick trial in the stabbing of a tourist a Las Vegas Strip resort hotel elevator.
Attorneys for Trent Wilcox and Carlos Heredia say the two men plan to plead not guilty Tuesday to felony attempted murder and battery with a weapon charges.
The 2 a.m. Feb. 16 incident left California tourist Eric Miller wounded in an elevator at The Hotel at Mandalay Bay.
Video shows Miller and his wife, Diane Androvich, arguing in the elevator with Wilcox and Heredia before Heredia stabs Miller.
Wilcox also received stab wounds as he held Miller from behind.
The 25-year-old Wilcox and 23-year-old Heredia could each face five to 55 years in prison if convicted of both charges. They're being held at the Clark County jail.
