LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3.com) – A Clark County grand jury indicted three people this morning in connection to the death of a man found in a Dumpster in August.
Emilio Evalio Arenas, 44, Theresa Allen, 46, and Peyton Hemingway face felony counts of murder with use of a deadly weapon; robbery with use of a deadly weapon; first-degree kidnapping with use of a deadly weapon; conspiracy to commit murder, kidnapping and robbery in the death of Carl Simon in August.
All were denied bail by Judge Linda Bell.
Chief Deputy District Attorney Marc DiGiacomo said the suspects beat, stabbed and tortured Simon, “and when he wouldn’t die,” he was stuffed into a suitcase as Ozzy Osbourne’s “Crazy Train” was played until he died.
Simon’s body was found Aug. 12 by a man retrieving items from a Dumpster on North Ringe Lane, near Lake Mead and Nellis.
DiGiacomo says Arenas placed the suitcase with Simon’s body in his car, and the blood dripping from the suitcase left a trail of DNA evidence.
Arenas and Hemingway were apprehended in early September in California. Hemingway has been fighting extradition.
Their next court date is set for 8:30 a.m. Oct. 9.
