A Democrat official who is accused of stabbing a journalist to death after he exposed his affair would not admit or deny his actions in a jailhouse interview but said that he has always lived his life to do “good for others”.
Robert Telles, 45, is a Clark County Public Administrator from Las Vegas who has been arrested on suspicion of butchering 69-year-old journalist, Jeff German after he exposed his extra-marital affair in the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
Speaking from Clark County Detention Center to the Las Vegas Review Journal, Telles refused to talk about the case, but said that he has “really tried” to do his “best” in life:
“I’ve just really try to do my best, to live my life doing good for others, and I’m hoping that, again, with everything that’s rolling around in the media these days, that people really see that,” he said.
The Democrat was arrested last week after his DNA was found under German’s fingernails, perhaps indicating that a struggle may have taken place, and German had scratched his attacker as he attempted to block the knife-blows.
