Darren Mack Trial Moved From Reno to Las Vegas

When we last checked in on the Darren Mack case, the prosecutor had been found to have engaged in unethical conduct by speaking with Mack to elicit a confession even though he knew Mack's family had retained counsel for him. The conversation was suppressed.

Mack is accused of killing his wife and then shooting the couples' divorce judge. He was on the lam in Mexico for days before surrendering. He's represented by David Chesnoff of Las Vegas (former partner of Mayor Oscar Goodman) and Scott Freeman.

Today, after three days of jury selection in Reno failed to yield sufficient jurors due to pretrial publicity, the judge ordered the trial moved to Las Vegas.

Mack has plead not guilty by reason of insanity.
