Three felony cases with two of them being for murder charges, it appears Shawn Eisenman is familiar with the wrong side of the law.

The I-Team dug deep into the past of defendant Eisenman who was in court Wednesday. He appears to be a career criminal. The I-Team obtained several of his most recent mugshots in Nevada dating back to 2013.

If convicted on these latest charges, Eisenman who also goes by the nickname "Bubba" could be locked up for good.

Although he mouthed "I love you" to a woman showing support for him in court, documents reveal a much darker side to the 30-year-old man.

Shawn Bradley Eisenman appeared in front of a judge for not one, not two, but three separate felony cases in Clark County Wednesday morning.

Since his release from prison for burglary and grand larceny in July 2015, Eisenman has been accused of possession of methamphetamine, attempted murder, and two separate murders -- both over money.

One of those victims was Jacklyn Frank's mother.

"It's heartbreaking, it's devastating," she said.

Metro police say Eisenman gunned down LaDonna Metais on her front porch in the northwest valley on July 3 over a utility trailer.

Metais and her boyfriend bought it, realized it was stolen, and police then impounded it.

Detectives were told Eisenman demanded $7,000 for items inside that trailer and said if it wasn't paid, Metais' home would be shot up.

According to court records, he kept his word.

"We just miss her and it's hard," Frank said.

This was the first time Frank says she saw her mother's accused killer -- a man who's had numerous run-ins with the law.

The tattoo enthusiast, convicted felon, father of at least one, according to a woman close to him could get life in prison if convicted of murder.

"We're happy that you know that he's behind bars and that he can't hurt anybody else either, but at the same time, it, it doesn't bring my mom back," Frank said.

Eisenman declined a request for an interview.

He is expected to appear in court again on Aug. 10.

He is also accused of trying to intimidate a witness connected to the attempted murder case against him.
