Man accused of killing, hiding bodies, pleads not guilty
News

LAS VEGAS -- A 52-year-old man facing murder charges pleaded not guilty Thursday in the deaths of a couple whose bodies were found in a storage unit 10 years after their deaths.

Robert Dixon Dunn was arraigned on an indictment accusing him of killing Joaquin Sierra and Eleanor Sierra in 2003 and cashing their Social Security checks totaling $200,000 or more.

Police say Dunn befriended the couple in Las Vegas in 1999, moved with them to Reno in 2002, and killed them sometime after the three moved back to Las Vegas the following year.

Authorities found the couple's remains last April in trash containers in a storage unit in a residential area several miles west of the Las Vegas Strip.



Dunn,who was appointed a public defender, waived his right to a speedy trial. His trial is set to begin Oct. 11, 2016.
