A Las Vegas murder suspect struck her pregnant attorney in court.
Shaunice McKinley, 25, faces murder and robbery charges in connection with the stabbing death of an 80-year-old man.
On Thursday she hit her attorney, Deputy Public Defender Kathleen Hamers, in the face.
Hamers, who is six months pregnant, said McKinley was removed from the courtroom.
Hamers was not seriously injured and did not require medical attention.
District Attorney Steve Wolfson will decide whether McKinley will face additional charges.
Hamers is no longer defending McKinley. The case was reassigned to Randy Pike.
