DA To File Murder Charges Against Las Vegas Stabbing Suspect

LAS VEGAS (AP) – A man with a large kitchen knife who terrorized tourists and locals on the Las Vegas Strip in a stabbing rampage that left two people dead and six others wounded will be charged with murder.

Clark County District Attorney Steve Wolfson said Friday he intends to file two counts of murder with use of a deadly weapon and six counts of attempted murder with use of a deadly weapon against Yoni Barrios.

The 32-year-old suspect had his initial court appearance.

He wore a dark blue jumpsuit and orange hand restraints.

It was not immediately clear if he had an attorney who could comment on his behalf. He will be arraigned next week.
