LAS VEGAS (AP) _ Police have arrested a rap figure in San
Francisco in a double slaying in Las Vegas last May. One of the
victims was Kansas City-based rapper Anthony ``Fat Tone'' Watkins.
A police affidavit calls the Las Vegas killings revenge for the
November 2004 drive-by slaying in Kansas City of California rapper
Andre ``Mac Dre'' Hicks.
Las Vegas police hoped the arrest of 35-year-old Andre Dow will
reveal links to other cases in their city. Dow is also a suspect in
a California killing that might be related to the Las Vegas case.
Nevada prosecutors will seek Dow's extradition for trial in Las
Vegas on murder and conspiracy charges in the May 23rd killings of
Watkins and another man, Jermaine ``Cowboy'' Akins.
