AS VEGAS - A 60-year-old man died Wednesday from injuries he received a week ago when a stolen car plowed into pedestrians on the crowded Las Vegas Strip, killing two other people.

Richard Bradford of Renton, Wash., died at University Medical Center, where a spokeswoman said he developed sudden complications.

A prosecutor said a third charge of murder would be filed against the driver in the Sept. 21 crash. Stephen M. Ressa, 27, is accused of intentionally steering over the curb and accelerating along the sidewalk in front of the Paris Las Vegas and Bally's hotel-casinos.

Ressa, of Rialto, Calif., already faces two murder counts in the deaths of two California men, as well as 12 attempted murder charges, 12 counts of battery with a deadly weapon and a charge of possession of a stolen car.

Ressa currently faces life in prison without the possibility of parole if convicted. Clark County District Attorney David Roger has said he may seek the death penalty.

Ressa is due in court Oct. 26. He is being held without bail pending a psychological evaluation sought by his defense lawyer.

Ressa told police he became angry at people he believed were "staring at him like they were 'demons'" and concealing guns in their pockets, according to a police report.

Prosecutors allege Ressa stole his mother's car after she was beaten and choked into unconsciousness Sept. 19 at her Rialto home.
