    LAS VEGAS -- A woman who was the last person seen with a missing 10-year-old Las Vegas girl did appear in a Las Vegas courtroom Friday morning for an alleged attack on a casino co-worker. The judge raised Stokes bail to $600,000 in lieu of expected murder charges in the Jade Morris case. The arraignment for Brenda Stokes, also known as Brenda Stokes Wilson, was delayed after her attorney requested more time to review the case. A prosecutor said blood was found in a car borrowed by Stokes.

    By Las Vegas standards, the night was young when two men entered the Bellagio at 10:45 Saturday and made a beeline for the table games. The two weren’t there for traditional gambling, though. Armed with pepper spray and disguised by wigs and sunglasses, the men made a bold bid to grab and make off with more than $100,000 worth of casino chips, according to a Metro Police arrest report released Monday. Bellagio employees foiled the robbery and captured 24-year-old Michael Quinn Belton, of Nuevo, Calif., police said. His alleged accomplice ran from the casino and remained at large Monday. The...

    Las Vegas casino bosses are serving notice to the bandit who made off with $1.5m in chips from the Bellagio: Try to redeem those worth $25,000 soon or they'll become worthless. Bellagio owner MGM Resorts International is giving public notice that it's discontinuing its standard chip valued at $25,000 and calling for all gamblers holding the chips to redeem them by April 22. After that, gambling regulators say each red chip with a grey inlay won't be worth more than the plastic it's cast from. 'The bottom line is that they're not money,' said David Salas, deputy enforcement chief for...

    'Muslim women don't have a problem with the fact that their husbands have a few other wives," declared the Iranian ayatollah with great conviction. Sitting across the conference table from him, in the magnificent 17th-century Villa Serbelloni on Lake Como in Italy, I disagreed. My conversations over the years with Muslim women colleagues had given me a quite different picture. "I would suggest that you don't really know how women feel since you're a man. I'm a woman, and I can tell you that women do not want to be one of several wives." While ordinarily this kind of challenge...
