Suspect Indicted In Kenny Clutch Shooting Murder & Additional Charges

Kenny Clutch's alleged killer could face the death penalty.

The Clark County District Court grand jury indicted Ammar Asim Faruq Harris on charges connected with the fatal drive-by shooting and fiery crash that killed three people on the Las Vegas Strip in February, among them rapper Kenny Clutch.

FoxNews.com reports that Harris, 27, was also indicted on a charge of robbery and three felony sex assault counts in a 2010 case that had been dismissed last year.

The latter case doesn't run afoul of double-jeopardy because the case had been dismissed without prejudice before a preliminary hearing, which allows prosecutors to seek new charges.

Clark County District Attorney Steve Wolfson said he is considering he death penalty in the Las Vegas Strip incident. The incident accuses Harris of three counts of murder, one count of attempted murder, and seven counts of discharging a weapon.

On February 21, Harris allegedly shot from a black Range Rover into a Maserati sports car that slammed into a taxi that burst into flames. Taxi driver Michael Boldon, 62, and passenger Sandra Sutton-Wasmund, 48, were killed. The Maserati driver, 27-year-old Kenneth Cherry, Jr., a/k/a Kenny Clutch, died at a hospital. Another man suffered gunshot wounds and survived, five others suffered lesser injuries.
