Tucker v. State
Citation:82 Nev. 127, 412 P.2d 970
On May 7, 1957, Horace Tucker telephoned the police station and asked a detective to come to the Tucker home in North Las Vegas. Upon arrival the detective observed that Tucker had been drinking, was unshaven, and looked tired. Tucker led the detective to the dining room where one, Earl Kaylor, was dead on the floor. Tucker said that he had been sleeping in the bedroom, awakened, and walked to the dining room where he noticed Kaylor lying on the floor. He denied having killed Kaylor. On 1963, Tucker telephoned the police and asked a sergeant to come to the Tucker home; that there was an old man dead. Upon arrival the sergeant noticed that Tucker had been drinking. A jury convicted him of second degree murder. At trial, the court allowed the state to introduce evidence of Kaylor homicide.
