A judge set bail at $2.26 million for a 37-year-old British motivational speaker accused of killing a Las Vegas woman and stuffing her severed body in a trash can.
Michael Victor Lane acknowledged today that he understood charges against him, and the judge set an evidentiary hearing for Jan. 11.
Lane faces murder and robbery charges in the slaying of 44-year-old Ginger Candela.
Police say Candela was hit with a frying pan and strangled with an electrical cord before her body was cut in half, doused with bleach and left in a trash can in her garage. It was found Nov. 30.
Lane also faces attempted murder and other charges for allegedly using the dead woman’s vehicle to run over a person Lane allegedly met for sex.
