Police ID man held in Calif. in Las Vegas casino manager’s death

LAS VEGAS (AP) - Las Vegas police have identified a man with a criminal history who was arrested in Southern California in the death of a Las Vegas slot machine parlor manager trying to stop a purse snatching.

Police said Wednesday that 28-year-old Samuel Schmid of Las Vegas was arrested late Monday in the Riverside County city of Desert Hot Springs.

Court records show that Schmid was sought on a murder warrant in the May 11 death of 60-year-old Alicia Gibellina.

Police allege that Schmid put a stolen Mercedes SUV in reverse and ran over Gibellina after she went outside the Dotty’s slot parlor to confront him about a purse stolen from a video gambling machine patron.
