Indictment in Stateline murder

A transient was indicted this week in the murder of a man last fall at the Hard Rock casino in Stateline.

Jose Rodriguez-Quezada, 44, is accused of murder with a deadly weapon.

Douglas County sheriff’s deputies found Kevin Edwards, 56, deceased in a Hard Rock hotel room on Oct. 3.

Rodriguez-Quezada is scheduled to be arraigned Jan. 23.

Details of the murder and the connection between the two have not been released. It is not known why the suspect was in Tahoe when he had been homeless in the Reno-Sparks area before then.

Bail was set at $1.5 million for Rodriguez-Quezada, who also is being held in Washoe County on a re-entry hold by Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
