The man charged with robbing a series of homes over a four-month span pleaded not guilty Wednesday in Clark County District Court.

Quincy Taylor, 25, who is also accused in a separate homicide case, faces 10 felony charges for a string of violent thefts from December 2012 to March from homes in the Chinatown area.

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.

When Judge Elissa Cadish asked Taylor if he understood the charges, Taylor said, “Ma’am, I’m not guilty for that.”

Taylor appeared to attempt to contest the charges a few times, with Cadish replying the trial would come later.

Trial was set for 10 a.m. Sept. 23.

Taylor faces a murder charge in a separate case.

He is accused in the March 19 fatal stabbing of Jeff Colicci, 46, at his Colicci’s apartment in the 3600 block of South Arville Street, near Spring Mountain Road.

During a July 19 preliminary hearing, on Las Vegas Township Justice of the Peace Cynthia Cruz found enough evidence existed to be bound over to District Court.

His next court appearance in that case is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. Aug. 5.

Taylor remains in the Clark County Detention Center on a $500,000 bond.
