I-Team: Competency of Accused Former Officer Questioned

LAS VEGAS -- The bizarre attempted murder case of a prominent local attorney continues to grab attention. Ronald Webb, a former police officer for Metro, stands accused of conspiring to murder his girlfriend Nancy Quon.

Last week, the I-Team spoke with Quon about being the target of an FBI investigation and the alleged plot on her life.

Tuesday morning in Henderson Justice Court, an attorney said Webb isn't competent to go to trial. Quon is already under heavy scrutiny for her role in questionable construction defect lawsuits. Police though, see her as a victim according to the plans of her boyfriend, Ron Webb.

Attorney John Momot, who is representing Webb, was able to get a delay in prosecution. Momot offered the court and reporters no information about Webb's mental status. Currently, Webb is in police custody and does not have the money to post bail.

Police say Webb worked with an informant to try to buy potent drugs to kill Quon. Webb had tried to make the purchases at Green Valley Ranch but was arrested by police. Momot has raised credibility questions about that source and wants to interview him.

"I always like it sooner than later, but that's a constant issue that we have between the state and the defense," said Momot.

Momot would not elaborate on Webb's mental condition or if he is a threat to himself. But he believes Webb needs an evaluation. Another court date has been set for late December when another judge is expected to decide if Webb is fit for trial.

The prosecution says the evidence in this case is going to be tough to refute. The arrest report references a number of videotapes, recorded conversations and more.
