LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) -- Bryan Clay's day in court Tuesday morning turned into a day off.
The man accused of a brutal double homicide in April was to appear in court concerning charges against him for reportedly attacking his pregnant 16-year-old pregnant ex-girlfriend.
Dan Silverstein, Clay’s attorney, asked to hold off on his preliminary hearing until after he has his preliminary hearing for the Martinez family homicides.
Clay's attorney wants to wait until clay has his more serious murder charges heard in court before we hear about these assault charges.
Some of Clay’s family members were also in court but declined to talk to any media.
His attorney was asked why he wants to wait until the Martinez family murder preliminary hearing. He said that it would be "the smartest thing to do."
Clay remains at the Clark County Detention Center. Clark County District Attorney Steve Wolfson is still deciding if Clay will face the death penalty.
