Report: Man freed in Las Vegas bodybuilder witness slaying plot

From the Las Vegas Sun...

LAS VEGAS (AP) - A convicted felon was set free after informing authorities of a plot to kill witnesses in the upcoming murder trial of married bodybuilders Craig Titus and Kelly Ryan, a newspaper reported.

Deen Cassim’s sentence was reduced in June to probation and he was released from the Clark County jail, according to documents cited by the Las Vegas Review-Journal for a Tuesday report.

Cassim, 32, had been sentenced in March to three to 12 years in prison for the 2004 robbery of nationally known poker player Greg “Fossilman” Raymer at the Bellagio hotel-casino.

Weeks later, according to police reports, he told authorities about the plot to murder three key witnesses against Titus and Ryan. The bodybuilding couple are due to stand trial in January in the slaying last December of their personal assistant, Melissa James, 28.

Authorities allege that in May, Nelson Ronald Brady Jr., a former cellmate of Titus, met with an undercover detective posing as a hit man and paid a $1,500 down payment on the killings.

Brady was arrested in October and faces three charges of solicitation to commit murder. Brady’s lawyer has said Brady will fight the charges.

Neither Titus, 41, nor Ryan, 34, has been charged in the alleged witness slaying plot, although prosecutor Robert Daskas said in court recently that Titus was involved.

Daskas declined comment on the Review-Journal report.

Titus defense lawyer Marc Saggese told the newspaper he was stunned that prosecutors let Cassim go free.
