Man convicted in Las Vegas woman’s 2009 stabbing death

A 53-year-old man was convicted of murder Tuesday in the 2009 stabbing death of his girlfriend.

David Frostick faces life in prison without the possibility of parole in the slaying of Robin Lesley Jenkins. He is scheduled to be sentenced by a jury later this week.

In closing arguments Tuesday, Chief Deputy District Attorney Frank Coumou told jurors, “There’s a killer among us.”

Jenkins was drinking a glass of wine and talking on the phone with her father at her southwest valley home in the 9500 block of Swan Bay Drive when she told Frostick to “put that down,” the prosecutor said.

Special Public Defender David Schieck asked jurors to “challenge the state’s investigation.”

The 45-year-old Las Vegas woman suffered 10 stab wounds, along with several defensive wounds.

Police were called to the home for a domestic disturbance and arrived to find a large amount of blood pooling under the door. Officers kicked the door in, and Frostick emerged from the kitchen of the home with a bloody, 7-inch butcher knife in hand, repeating “I’m sorry,” according to the prosecutor.
