LAS VEGAS – A not guilty plea has been entered on behalf of a 22-year-old man jailed in the brutal sex attacks and hammer slayings of a Las Vegas mother and her daughter.
Bryan Devonte Clay Jr. was not asked to enter his own plea. He said little during the brief court hearing Wednesday.
Clay is accused of attacking and killing Ignacia Yadira Martinez and 10-year-old Karla Martinez in their beds, and bludgeoning husband and father Arturo Martinez with a hammer. Martinez is critically injured.
Two boys, ages 9 and 4, were spared during the bloody attack in the Martinez home.
Clay also is accused of trying to rape a 50-year-old woman in a separate attack hours earlier not far from the home.
An evidence hearing was set for June 15.
