Arrested man in handcuffs with handcuffed hands behind back in prison

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A Dec. 5 trial date has been set for a Las Vegas man accused of killing his girlfriend’s 4-year-old son and hiding the body in a freezer. Police reported finding the body in February after the boy’s sister gave notes to her teacher saying her mother was being held captive at the man’s home. Brandon Toseland has been jailed since his arrest Feb. 22 on charges including murder, kidnapping, child abuse and domestic battery by strangulation. His defense attorney didn’t immediately respond Tuesday to messages seeking comment. The 35-year-Toseland pleaded not guilty last week in the case in which prosecutors have said they may seek the death penalty.
