Harris is accused of killing an aspiring rapper behind the wheel of a Maserati that crashed into a taxi, which then burst into flames, killing a driver and a tourist from Washington state.

Harris is already serving 16 years to life in Nevada state prison on separate rape and robbery convictions, plus up to five more years for bribing a prison guard to obtain cellphones.
