LAS VEGAS - A Nevada woman who has already done her time for stealing casino executive Ted Binion's silver is trying to get her conviction overturned.
Sandy Murphy's third lawyer withdrew from the case this week. A judge gave her two weeks to find another one, The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.
Binion's 1998 death in Las Vegas was originally ruled a drug overdose. But Murphy, Binion's girlfriend, was charged with murder and theft after Rick Tabish, with whom she was also having an affair, was caught retrieving $7 million in silver from an underground vault.
Murphy and Tabish were convicted of murder but won a retrial from the Nevada Supreme Court. At the second trial, they were acquitted of murder and convicted of larceny and related charges.
Binion was the son of Benny Binion, owner of the Horseshoe Casino.
