Deadly Las Vegas Strip Crash Was No Accident: Police

Lakeisha Nicole Holloway could face more than 1,000 years in prison if she's convicted of numerous new charges brought against her Wednesday for allegedly mowing down dozens of pedestrians on the Las Vegas Strip, killing one and injuring dozens more.

Holloway, 24, who is originally from Oregon but had been living in her car with her 3-year-old daughter at the time of the incident Dec. 20, was arraigned Wednesday at the Las Vegas-Clark County Regional Justice Center.

Prosecutors dropped a preliminary count of leaving the scene of an accident, but their amended criminal complaint added numerous battery counts, for a total of 71, including one count of open murder with use of a deadly weapon, 30 counts of attempted murder with the use of a deadly weapon and two counts of child abuse.

The abuse counts relate to Holloway's daughter -- who was in the back seat when Holloway drove her car onto the sidewalk near the Planet Hollywood hotel-casino -- and to an 11-year-old victim who was struck.

Police have previously said that the incident was a premeditated attack, and Clark County District Attorney Steve Wolfson said Wednesday that is she's convicted on all 71 counts, Holloway could be sentenced to more than 1,000 years in prison.

Chief Deputy District Attorney Marc DiGiacomo said the charges would "ensure the protection of our community from the defendant for a very long time."

Attorney Scott Coffee, Holloway's public defender, told NBC station KSNV that she was "doing well" and was not on suicide watch.

Court records showed that Holloway, who remains held without bond in protective custody, is next due in court Feb. 4.
