Man arrested in slaying of store clerk

Jason Miller, 24, was booked into the North Las Vegas Detention Center at 1:38 a.m. for murder with a deadly weapon, robbery with a deadly weapon and two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, according to North Las Vegas police.

Police said Miller and a second suspect entered the 7-Eleven at 2100 E. Cheyenne Ave., near Civic Center Drive, and demanded money from the clerk, Suchinna Revtissamaharamaye.
