The 18-year-old man who was arrested in the stabbing death of another man in the Tropicana hotel and casino parking lot will appear in court later this month.
Tanner Rousseau, of Arlington, Wash., is scheduled for a preliminary hearing on May 26. His bail is set at $50,000.
Metro Police officers arrested Rousseau after finding a man who had been stabbed several times in the resort's parking lot about 4:12 a.m. Friday.
The victim, 35-year-old Gregory Dominique of Cleveland, Ohio, was taken to University Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead, police said.
Officers searching the area found Rousseau in a car near the Las Vegas Strip resort, police said. Rousseau was booked into the Clark County Detention Center on a charge of murder with a deadly weapon.
Police say they believe the two men got into an argument over drugs.
