Man indicted second time in shooting death

LAS VEGAS -- For the second time in three months a Clark County grand jury indicted Zuri Burton for the August 2013 shooting death of Sterling Niitsuma in a home near Torrey Pines Drive and Craig Road.

Burton allegedly shot the 35-year-old Niitsuma in the head after arranging to buy marijuana from the victim. 

Burton, who remains in custody at the Clark County Detention Center without bail, was charged with murder with use of a deadly weapon, robbery, conspiracy to violate the uniform controlled substances act and related charges.

Some of the charges in the initial indictment were dismissed on a technicality, which is why a second indictment was brought against Burton.
