Jesus Ayala, 18, and Jzamir Keys, 16, were indicted for the alleged murder of former officer chief Andreas Probst, among other grave charges. During the hearing in a Las Vegas courtroom, far from showing any semblance of remorse, the teen defendants instead chose to sneer at the bereaved family members present, even going so far as to make offensive gestures toward them blatantly.
Jesus Ayala and Jzamir Keys stand accused of a monstrous act that occurred on August 14. According to reports, they were recklessly driving a stolen car when they purportedly struck 66-year-old Probst, who was cycling, leading to his tragic demise. They were also accused of hitting another cyclist, who, by a stroke of luck, escaped with minor injuries. What’s even more chilling is that these adolescents allegedly filmed their atrocious exploits, finding amusement in their cruelty.
Outrage and Disbelief Post-Hearing
Following the court session, the victim’s family expressed their profound distress and outrage. Taylor Probst, the late officer’s daughter, shared her disbelief and anger with KSNV. “Their attitude was unbelievable, showing no remorse after taking a life. They were flipping us off,” she said, appalled by their lack of repentance or understanding of the severity of their actions.
As the case progresses, the two accused are confined without bail in the Clark County Detention Center, awaiting further legal proceedings. The disturbing nature of the crime, coupled with the disrespectful courtroom behaviour, has rattled the community, raising questions about youth crime and accountability.
