Hearing For Las Vegas Man Accused Of Killing Toddler Delayed

LAS VEGAS (AP) — The arraignment for new charges for a Las Vegas man accused of killing his girlfriend's 2-year-old son has been postponed.

KLAS-TV reports that 27-year-old Terrell Rhodes, who is already charged with murder, was due to appear in court Monday.

The new counts included resisting a public officer with a firearm and four charges of assault on a protected person with a deadly weapon. The arraignment will now take place June 1.

Two-year-old Amari Nicholson vanished from the Emerald Suites apartments May 5. Several days later, investigators say Rhodes confessed to fatally beating Amari after the toddler urinated in his pants the day he was reported missing.
