LAS VEGAS (AP) — A 23-year-old man accused in a fatal stabbing in Las Vegas and then posting to Snapchat with the victim’s property has been extradited back to Clark County, authorities said.

Las Vegas Metro Police said 23-year-old Nile Herrington was arrested November 2nd north of Austin, Texas in connection with the death of 34-year-old Anthony King. He was booked into the Clark County Detention Center on Friday.

Herrington is accused of stabbing King on Oct. 25 inside a unit at the City View Apartments on Desert Inn and Arville


After the stabbing, Herrington allegedly drove to Texas in King’s car. 

According to the arrest report, King’s friends gave officers photos from Herrington’s Snapchat, where he had reportedly posted multiple times wearing King’s unique jewelry and driving King’s car.

Police said King owned multiple short-term rentals in Las Vegas and hired Herrington to clean them.

Investigators believe Herrington stabbed King with a steak knife found at the scene, then robbed King’s residence before driving to Texas.
