NEVADA, USA — It was 1984.
Marty Keach was a young prosecutor in the district attorney’s office in Las Vegas.
The case was the savage ax-handle attack on Nancy and Chris Barry.
The suspect was Alex Christopher Ewing.
And listening to Keach … it’s easy to see why he was determined to put Ewing away.
