LAS VEGAS (CNN Newsource) — Las Vegas police said they’ve caught the man accused of killing a stranger with a sledgehammer.
36-year-old Clinton Taylor appeared in court Friday.
Police said early Thursday morning they got a 911 call from a screaming woman who was at a laundromat.
When officers arrived on scene they found the woman had been beaten to death in a random attack.
The suspect was found not far from the scene, covered in blood and with a sledgehammer.
Taylor allegedly told police the woman wanted him to “smash” her.
He’s charged with murder and is being held without bail.
