Trial has begun in federal court in Las Vegas for a 49-year-old senior Clark County human resources analyst accused of conspiring with a dead former judge to steal $824,000 from an auto insurance company.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported that a prosecutor Gregory Damm told a jury Monday that Erik Holman used stolen money to take cruises and overseas trips.
Holman pleaded not guilty to a 2011 federal grand jury indictment accusing him of conspiracy and wire fraud.
Assistant Federal Public Defender Raquel Lazo told the jury that Provost acted alone.
Provost was 48 when he committed suicide in July 2009, amid embezzlement allegations.
