Defense Plan's To Question Murdered Man's Character

Posted: Updated:

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) -- Defense attorneys plan to present evidence questioning the character of Nevada's chief insurance examiner, who was killed April 2 at his Carson City apartment.

Defense lawyer Dennis Widdis says 62-year-old William McCune "seems to have had a darker side than what was previously assumed."

He made the comments during a court hearing Friday for the four people charged with killing him and dumping his body in the Carson River in Carson City.

The Nevada Appeal reports Justice of the Peace John Tatro granted Widdis permission to seek court records from Louisiana that he said detailed McCune's sex offenses there.

Attorney John Springgate asked Tatro to have sheriff's investigators look into McCune's computer system, saying it contained child pornography.

A preliminary hearing is set to begin Oct. 8 to determine whether there's sufficient evidence to try the four defendants for murder.

Charged in McCune's murder are 20-year-old Makyla Blackmore, 20-year-old Anthony Elliott, 22-year-old Raul Garcia and 23-year-old Michael Evans.
