    More charges expected for ex-NFL player in Las Vegas girl’s death


    A former NFL player is expected to face 10 new charges in the death of a 5-year-old girl, prosecutors said Tuesday.

    Cierre Wood, 28, already faces a charge of first-degree murder along with nine counts of child abuse.

    Chief Deputy District Attorney Michelle Jobe is expected to argue for the 10 new child abuse counts at a Wednesday hearing. The possible addition came after a lengthy preliminary hearing Tuesday in which a Clark County medical examiner testified that La’Rayah Patra Nicole Lamont Davis, the daughter of Wood’s girlfriend, Amy Taylor, had scratches and bruises over her entire body along with contusions on her organs and fractures to most of her ribs.
    [.....]
    Taylor also faces murder and child abuse charges in the girl’s April 9 death, but her attorneys opted to postpone her preliminary hearing.
