A 39-year-old Las Vegas man received two death sentences Thursday for killing two prostitutes in 2006.
The same jury last week convicted Jason McCarty of 15 felonies and one gross misdemeanor, including two counts of murder with a deadly weapon, kidnapping and robbery, after a nearly monthlong trial.
Authorities said McCarty along with Domonic “D-Roc” Malone in May 2006 beat to death with a golf club and rocks Victoria Magee, 26, and Charlotte Combado, 34, whose bodies were found in the desert in Henderson.
Malone had threatened to bury the two women in the desert if they didn’t make him money when he dropped them off at the Hard Rock Hotel.
Malone, who is representing himself, is scheduled to stand trial June 6.
A third co-defendant, Donald Herb, pleaded guilty in August 2006 to accessory to murder and agreed to testify against McCarty and Malone.
An appeal is expected as is done in all capital cases. Appeals in death penalty cases can take more than a decade.
