Suspect in fatal stabbing of Vietnamese nationals in Las Vegas arrested

A suspect in the killings of two Vietnamese at the Circus Circus Casino hotel and casino in Las Vegas, the US, has been detained, according to the FBI.

Julius Trotter was located in a home in California and was arrested after a car chase. The victims, a man and a woman, came to Las Vegas with a Vietnamese tourist group, who were on a trip organized by their company. Their bodies were found in their hotel room with multiple stab wounds. The arrest came a day after police in Las Vegas said they were seeking a man in his late 20s with a tattoo just below the neckline. Las Vegas Police said that the attack probably happened about the time someone reported hearing arguing in a room on the 21st floor of the hotel. Julius Trotter is being held at a jail in San Bernardino County. Last year, he pleaded guilty in Las Vegas and was sentenced to five years of probation for felony resisting of a police officer with a weapon and reckless driving.
