LAS VEGAS (AP) -- A court date has been pushed back to Jan. 8 for a 42-year-old ex-convict accused of shooting and killing a nightclub patron and wounding two employees at an after-hours Las Vegas Strip nightclub.

Benjamin Paul Frazier had been scheduled in court Wednesday. But a judge on Friday approved allowing a doctor to conduct a psychological evaluation.

Frazier faces murder, battery and weapon charges in the pre-dawn Oct. 21 shooting at Drai's After Hours at Bally's hotel-casino.

A trial date hasn't been set. Prosecutors could say Wednesday whether they'll seek the death penalty.

Frazier's lawyer, Bob Beckett, says Frazier doesn't remember the shooting.

Police say Frazier disputed a $30 cover charge before wounding club doorman Robert Farias and security guard Anthony Guerrero, and killing 40-year-old Kenneth Brown when he tackled Frazier.
