Report: Las Vegas Democrat Accused of Killing Journalist Will Keep $130K Salary in Jail

The Democrat official accused of murdering a journalist will reportedly continue drawing paychecks while behind bars in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Last week, Clark County Public Administrator Robert Telles was charged in the stabbing death of the Las Vegas Review-Journal’s Jeff German, according to the New York Post.

German, who was 69-years-old, was found dead outside his home on September 3. Officials claimed Telles, whom German had written investigative reports exposing corruption, had self-inflicted stab wounds when he was taken into custody.
