An ex-criminal has argued not liable to murdering a 24-year-old grown-up diversion model and encasing her body in a solid structure found in the desert outside Las Vegas.
Christopher Santo Prestipino’s lawyer, William Terry, declined to remark Tuesday following their appearance in Nevada state court.
The 45-year-old Prestipino has been prosecuted on murder, grabbing and intrigue charges in the demise of Esmeralda Gonzalez.
Prestipino and his 39-year-old flatmate, Casandra Garrett, are blamed for harming and choking Gonzalez in May.
Gonzalez’s body was found in October close to the Interstate 15 network of Glendale.
Garrett was captured a month ago in Wisconsin, where she is imprisoned in Milwaukee pending her removal to Las Vegas.
Prestipino’s 31-year-former sweetheart, Lisa Mort, is expected in court one month from now on a charge of helping a criminal.
