The victim has now been identified as Rip Alan Swartz, who was homeless at the time of his murder.

A 22-year-old man is due to face a judge in the fatal stabbing of a pedestrian on a walkway bridge over the Las Vegas Strip.

A court clerk says Calvin Boyden III is due Tuesday before Las Vegas Justice of the Peace Janiece Marshall on felony charges including murder and robbery in the early Nov. 25 slaying on a bridge at Harmon Avenue. That’s near the CityCenter hotel, casino and shopping complex.

The Clark County coroner hasn’t identified the man who was killed because investigators have had trouble reaching family members for notification.

Police say Boyden and the victim were involved in a confrontation on the walkway before the stabbing.

Jail records show that Boyden also is held on charges including domestic battery with a weapon and burglary.

Calvin Boyden III has been charged with the murder.
