Man to hire lawyer in Las Vegas bodybuilder case murder plot

More news…

LAS VEGAS – A former cellmate of bodybuilder Craig Titus was given more time Monday to hire a lawyer to represent him on charges he tried to hire a hit man to kill three witnesses in Titus’ slaying case.

A Las Vegas judge gave Nelson Ronald Brady Jr., 34, until Wednesday to hire an attorney. Brady, of Las Vegas, was arrested Thursday on three counts of solicitation to commit murder.

He is accused of paying an undercover detective a $1,500 down-payment last May to have the three key witnesses in Titus’ murder case killed.

Titus, 41, and his wife, Kelly Ryan, 34, face murder and other charges in the December slaying of their personal assistant, Melissa James, 28. Her body was found in Ryan’s burned-out Jaguar sedan. Prosecutors say she was drugged, bound, shocked with a stun gun and strangled.

Prosecutor Robert Daskas said outside court on Monday that police ensured the three would-be targets of the slaying plot – Megan Pierson Foley, her husband, Jeremy Foley, and Anthony Gross, a co-defendant in the case – were never in danger.

The Foleys told a grand jury that Titus and Ryan had made incriminating statements about James’ death.

Gross is accused of helping Titus and Ryan dispose of James’ body in Ryan’s car off a highway outside Las Vegas. Gross is on house arrest on $13,000 bail after pleading not guilty to accessory to murder and third-degree arson.

Neither Titus nor Ryan has been charged in the murder-for-hire plot, Daskas said. They are due for trial in January.

Titus and Ryan are fitness celebrities. Titus once was a top contestant in the Mr. Olympia bodybuilding competition. Ryan is a past Fitness America and Fitness International winner.
