Bayzle Morgan, 21, appeared Wednesday in Las Vegas Justice Court where his hearing was continued until Friday. Morgan and Keith Smith, 46, face charges in the death of 75-year-old Jean Main, who was beaten and shot in her home on May 22.
Morgan and Smith are expected to appear together in court on Friday.
Morgan is charged with first-degree murder, burglary, robbery and kidnapping while Smith was charged with burglary and conspiracy to commit burglary.
According to police reports, an intruder entered Main’s home in the 8000 block of Green Pasture Avenue, near Cimarron and Lone Mountain roads, and struck her several times with a pistol. The intruder then shot her in the head.
A getaway driver, identified in the arrest report as Smith, left when he heard gunshots but returned and saw Morgan with a suitcase of items from Main’s house.
The police recovered a laptop, a Kindle Fire, a purse with $800 and keys to a Cadillac Escalade at Morgan’s residence when he was arrested on May 30.
