A bail hearing will be Wednesday for a former Las Vegas police officer who investigators suspect had been plotting to kill his girlfriend, a local attorney, with drugs.

William Ronald Webb Jr., 42, made his first court appearance in Henderson Justice Court by video this morning from the Clark County Detention Center, where he is being held without bail.

Webb's bail hearing was set for 9 a.m. Wednesday before Chief Judge Rodney T. Burr in Henderson Justice Court.

Webb, who is being represented by attorney John Momot, waived the reading of the complaint filed against him. He has been arrested on charges of trafficking in a controlled substance, conspiracy to commit murder and conspiracy to commit a crime.

Police said Webb is accused of plotting to kill Nancy Quon, a local attorney, by giving her large amounts of the drug gamma-hydroxybutyric acid, which is known by the street name GHB. Police are investigating the case as an insurance fraud case and looking into whether Quon was trying to kill herself, with Webb's help.

"Whether Quon was suicidal and involved in the plot remains under investigation," police said.

Webb was arrested shortly after 7 p.m. Tuesday in the parking lot of a local hotel-casino where he and Quon were living after an Oct. 28 fire at their residence, police said.

The FBI raided the office of Quon, a well-known attorney who represented homeowner associations, in 2008 as part of an FBI probe into election corruption practices of condo home ownership associations.

  1. Bad cops, crooked attorneys, corrupt elections, I thought I was reading about Chicago politics for a moment.
