MMA fighter charged in fatal Vegas hotel scuffle

LAS VEGAS — Prosecutors have filed a broad criminal murder charge against a 25-year-old one-time mixed martial arts fighter in the slaying of a former UNLV football player in a scuffle at a Las Vegas party.

A complaint filed Tuesday accuses Jason Sindelar of open murder in the June 19 death of 26-year-old DeMario Reynolds Sr.

The charge gives a jury several options at trial, including manslaughter.

A judge gave Sindelar until Friday to post $50,000 bail pending trial.

Witnesses say Reynolds intervened in a 4 a.m. altercation between Sindelar and Sindelar's girlfriend in a room at the Luxor hotel-casino.

The Clark County coroner ruled that Reynolds died of cocaine, Ecstasy and alcohol intoxication, with injuries received in the fight a contributing factor.
