Tabish Claims Innocence in Teddy Binion's Death

LAS VEGAS - A former stripper's secret lover turned to jurors and declared without hesitation that he had nothing to do with the death of a one-time casino executive for a piece of a million-dollar estate and a fortune in buried silver.

"Absolutely, unequivocally not," Rick Tabish said Friday, as he locked eyes with several members of the jury. "I did not kill Ted Binion."

The dramatic opening to nearly five hours of testimony Friday was a departure from the first murder trial in which defense attorneys did not put Tabish on the witness stand.

Tabish and Binion's live-in girlfriend, Sandy Murphy, are being retried after the Nevada Supreme Court tossed out their 2000 murder convictions on appeal.
