Judge denies new sentence for man who killed girl at Nevada casino


A Las Vegas judge has denied a request to resentence a man who sexually assaulted and killed a 7-year-old girl more than two decades ago inside a Primm casino restroom.

District Judge Douglas Smith enhanced his decision from late last week with a separate special order that laid out the gruesome facts of Jeremy Strohmeyer’s crime, along with the killer’s subsequent racist comments to friends, a confession to police and a computer loaded with child pornography. The judge also pointed to Strohmeyer’s 1998 plea deal with prosecutors before addressing a psychologist’s testimony from this year that those in late adolescence — ages 18 to 20 — do not have the emotional and intellectual maturity of adults.
