Man accused of killing 2 tourists at Circus Circus extradited back to Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS - The man suspected of killing two people at a hotel on the Strip has been extradited back to Las Vegas.

Metro Police said 31-year-old Julius Trotter killed two people at Circus Circus on June 1.

Hotel staff found the couple visiting from Vietnam stabbed to death in their room.  Police think the incident may have stemmed from a robbery.

Hotel surveillance video is what led officers to believe Trotter was the perpetrator.  He was seen on the elevator with one of the victim's bags.
