Man indicted for ex-wife's murder

LAS VEGAS -- A 37-year-old man was indicted by a Clark County grand jury on charges that he beat his ex-wife to death on June 13 in a Las Vegas apartment on Durango Drive near Sahara Avenue. Marvin

Moran faces charges of murder with use of a deadly weapon, first degree kidnapping with use of a deadly weapon and burglary while in possession of a deadly weapon.

The victim, Iris Moran, was discovered in the apartment with her hands tied behind her back after Marvin Moran allegedly called 911 on her cellular telephone and told dispatchers that, "there is a b--- dying, go help her out, ain't no joke."

She was discovered with wounds to her face, head and hands, according to prosecutors. Marvin Moran remains in custody in the Clark County Detention Center on no bail, and is set to appear in court Aug. 4.

The couple's children told police that their mother was dating someone else and their father knew about it.
