Marque Gardeley

The death penalty trial of a man accused of killing another man in a dispute last year in a Walgreens parking lot has been postponed at the request of his attorneys.

Marque Gardeley is charged with murder in the first degree, use of a deadly weapon in a crime and robbery in connection with the March 1, 2008, shooting death of 36-year-old Marty Devon Jacobs.

Gardeley has pleaded not guilty to all charges.

Police records indicate Jacobs was shot after an argument while he sat behind the wheel of his white Lexus at the Walgreens drug store at Tropicana Avenue and Decatur Boulevard. He died at the scene.

Gardeley’s trial was set to begin Sept. 21, but his attorneys said they wanted more time to investigate new information. His trial is now set to begin June 28. District Court Judge Elissa Cadish agreed to the continuance but said the trial shouldn’t be delayed again.

Gardeley is being held at the Clark County Detention Center without bond.
