Quincy Taylor

A Clark County grand jury indicted a suspect in a homicide case Wednesday for a series of Chinatown robberies.

Quincy Taylor, 25, faces 10 felony robbery-related charges for a string of violent thefts from homes in the Chinatown area from December to March. Ten victims testified, with several saying that a gun was held to their head during the robbery, according to a prosecutor.

Taylor is charged with seven counts of robbery with a deadly weapon, one count of robbery with a deadly weapon against a victim 60 years of age or older, one count of attempted robbery with a deadly weapon and one count of attempted robbery with a deadly weapon against a victim 60 years of age or older.

He will be arraigned in District Court on those charges July 24.

Taylor is also facing felony charges in a separate fatal robbery case.

In that case, he is accused of stabbing Jeff Colicci, 46, to death at his apartment on March 19 in the 3600 block of South Arville Street, near Spring Mountain Road.

A preliminary hearing for the homicide case is set for July 19 at 9 a.m. in front of Las Vegas Township Justice Court Judge Cynthia
 Cruz.

Taylor is being held in the Clark County Detention Center on a $500,000 bail.
