6 indicted in pummeling death of Las Vegas teacher

Associated Press

LAS VEGAS (AP) – Six people, including two teenagers, have been indicted in the pummeling death of a Las Vegas high school teacher who prosecutors say was attacked because he dressed nicely.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports a Clark County grand jury handed up an indictment Wednesday accusing 19-year-old Saul Favela of leading three 20-year-olds and two 16-year-olds on a violent robbery spree in northwest Las Vegas until they came upon 50-year-old Timothy VanDerbosch on Oct. 20.

Investigators say VanDerbosch tried to run after he was first attacked, but the group chased him down, beat him into unconsciousness, and left him in a street where he was struck by a passing truck. He later died at University Medical Center.

Authorities say the group was into random violence.
