3 Charged in 1998 Skinhead Slayings Near Vegas
A dozen years ago, a neo-Nazi skinhead named John Butler was convicted of killing two young men who, while also skinheads, condemned his white supremacist beliefs. But authorities have long contended that Butler had help gunning down his victims in the desert outside Las Vegas.
On Wednesday, federal prosecutors indicted three people they described as Butler’s accomplices in the 1998 killings of Daniel Shersty and Lin Newborn, who belonged to a Las Vegas group dedicated to fighting racism.
Melissa Hack, Ross Hack and Leland Jones were charged with murder and firearms offenses.
