Couple held without bond in bloody saw slaying
LAS VEGAS (AP) — A Las Vegas couple found with a bloody saw and clothing in their apartment will be jailed without bond until an evidentiary hearing next month on charges they killed a neighbor whose body was found outside in a box.
Twenty-year-olds Anthony Stiger and Melanie Costantini said nothing Wednesday during their appearance in Las Vegas Justice Court in which a judge accepted not guilty pleas on their behalf.
They were arrested Nov. 14 in Southern California after the body of 58-year-old Harold Myles Shilberg was found Nov. 9 outside an apartment building on East Fremont Street in Las Vegas. His body had multiple cuts.
The judge scheduled a preliminary hearing for Dec. 19 on felony murder and conspiracy charges that could carry the death penalty if Stiger and Costantini are convicted.
