DNA under the fingernails of a journalist killed in Las Vegas matched that of a local county leader arrested for murder, a prosecutor told a judge this week, adding further evidence that the leader was in the murder of journalists, which seems to be a form of revenge. – Extensive homicides.

Chief Assistant District Attorney Richard Scow told Justice of the Peace Elana Lee Graham on Thursday that Jeff Deman, a former reporter for the Las Vegas Review-Journal, had genetic material with the genetic material of the public administrator of the Clark County, Robert Telles. He was found dead outside his Las Vegas home last week.

“The DNA was reportedly recovered from the victim, presumably while he was fighting for his life,” Graham said during Thursday’s hearing. She also noted that a police investigation found he had multiple defensive wounds, suggesting he was trying to shield himself from attack when he died.

The Thales murder charge sparked speculation that the chief executive may have committed the crime in retaliation for a series of German-authored reports that commentators say could have harmed the political careers of county officials.

German’s investigation revealed that Telles had an inappropriate relationship with an employee and that she may also have exploited a hostile work environment. Thales lost its re-election primary in June, a month after the German investigation was made public.

Thales was denied bail at a hearing on Thursday and will appear in court on Tuesday.
