    NV - Prisma Contreras, 21, & Julio Romero, 64, murdered, Las Vegas, Jan 2010

    This happened not far from my work, in a newer neighborhood:


    LAS VEGAS, NV (KTNV) - A knock on the door turns into pure terror for a southwest valley couple early Monday morning.

    Police say the suspect said he was looking for someone that the couple didn't even know. For unknown reasons the man was reportedly allowed into the home on Sage Pines Drive, near Russell and Jones.

    The suspect reportedly opened fire, shooting the husband numerous times before taking aim on the wife of the household. After being shot in the face, the woman was able to sneak off to a bedroom closet. It was there where police believe she dialed 911.

    Investigators arrived to find the husband dead. By that time, the suspect has disappeared. The wife was rushed to UMC for surgery, where she is currently listed in critical condition.

    From May 2013:


    Gregory Hover soon will become the 84th resident of Nevada’s death row. A jury decided on Friday that Hover, 41, should be executed for killing two people in 2010 during a crime spree that also involved rape and robbery...

    During a penalty hearing this week, prosecutors described Hover as a racist who took pleasure in the suffering of his Hispanic victims...

    Hover was employed as a process server when he kidnapped 21-year-old Prisma Contreras from a parking lot on East Tropicana Avenue. He proceeded to rape, stab and strangle her. The young mother’s body was found in a burned-out car south of Boulder City on Jan. 15, 2010.

    Hover also was convicted of fatally shooting 64-year-old Julio Romero during a robbery on Jan. 25, 2010.
    From September 2013:


    A judge gave Richard Freeman Jr. the “glimmer of hope” he asked for Wednesday when she sentenced him to life in prison with the possibility of parole for his role in two 2010 murders...

    Freeman, 22, must serve at least 56 years before officials may consider granting him parole. He already has spent more than three years behind bars since his arrest in the case...

    Earlier this year, Chief Deputy District Attorney Marc DiGiacomo said Freeman had acted as Hover’s co-conspirator and driver but did not participate in the acts of violence.
