CARSON CITY – An inmate on death row for a Las Vegas murder at the state prison in Ely has hanged himself in his cell, the White Pine County Sheriff’s Office says.
Timothy L. Redmen, 45 was convicted of the 1990 fatal shooting of Max Biederman, whose face was mutilated with a wrought iron railing and his hands cut off.
The hands were put into a bag and dumped in the desert. The body was placed in a trash bin.
Redmen was later arrested in Idaho.
The sheriff’s office said the cell door was wedged shut and it had to be removed to gain entry to the cell on Nov. 18.
Prison officials say an autopsy is being conduct.
