Official Website of David & Nicole Binion | Conference, Workshop and Church Event Bookings. Lonnie Theodore Binion (November 28, – September 17, ), or Ted Binion, was a wealthy American gambling executive and one of the sons of famed Las Vegas casino magnate Benny Binion, owner of Binion's Horseshoe. Nicole Binion was born to sing, and through her early teens, that is exactly what she did, bringing joy with every performance. With dreams of a career in musical theater, she would sing regularly at church, school and a variety of other venues and events. Binion was known to have a penchant for burying things valuable to him. Brown told the Las Vegas Sun that the landscapers discovered a 4-foot-byfoot-byfoot hole near a playhouse Binion had.
However, despite the urgings of Becky Behnen and Jack Binion, they refused to open a full-scale homicide investigation. Six months later, chief medical examiner Lary Simms ruled Binion had died of a heroin and Xanax overdose.
After six months, however, the Clark County Coroner 's office reclassified Ted's death a homicide on May 5, Although there were no specifics, law enforcement sources cited evidence that the death scene had been staged, as well as witness statements implicating Murphy and Tabish.
Detectives had suspected for some time that Murphy and Tabish had been romantically involved, and had learned that Binion suspected Murphy was cheating on him.
In June , Sandy Murphy and Rick Tabish were arrested for Binion's murder, as well as for conspiracy, robbery, grand larceny and burglary.
The prosecution contended that Murphy and Tabish had conspired to kill Binion and steal his wealth, drugging Binion into unconsciousness and burking him, a form of manual suffocation.
The suffocation, in this theory, which was presented at trial by forensics pathologist Michael Baden , who testified for the prosecution,  was done because the overdose was taking too long, and the pair feared discovery.
They were each charged with murder and burglary charges connected to the removal of his fortune from the vault on the desert floor in Pahrump.
A police report that was not used in the first trial by Rick Tabish's first attorney Louie Palazzo revealed that a drive-by shooting occurred on June 5, , in front of Ted Binion's Palomino Lane home.
Included in the police report about the late night incident is a statement by Ted Binion alleging that Chance LeSueur and Benny Behnen were the shooters.
The case attracted national media attention. After two months of trial, Murphy and Tabish were found guilty, after nearly 68 hours of deliberation.
Tabish was sentenced to 25 years to life in prison, while Murphy received 22 years to life. Later that year, David Roger , who prosecuted the case, was elected Clark County district attorney, and David Wall, who second-chaired the prosecution, was elected district judge.
However, in July , the Nevada Supreme Court overturned the murder convictions, ruling that Clark County District Court Judge Joseph Bonaventure erred in deliberation instructions to the jury.
The justices found that Tabish should have received a separate trial for the assault and blackmail of another businessman.
While the prosecution was never able to prove a link between this crime and Binion's murder, the justices said, testimony regarding the separate assault prejudiced the jury against Tabish.
The justices also ruled that jurors should have been told to consider statements by Binion's estate attorney as statements of the attorney's mind, not fact.
The defendants were granted a new trial, which began on October 11, in Judge Bonaventure's courtroom. This time, Murphy, who was represented by Michael Cristalli, and Tabish, represented by famed civil rights lawyer J.
Tony Serra , and local Las Vegas attorney Joseph Caramagno,  were each acquitted of murder but were convicted on lesser charges of burglary 12 to 60 months and grand larceny 12 to 60 months connected with the Binion case.
Tabish also was convicted of use of deadly weapon 18 to 60 months. Murphy was sentenced to time served and did not return to prison.
Tabish was originally sentenced to serve consecutive terms and was denied parole in , and On January 26, he was brought into Las Vegas where the Nevada parole board granted him "Parole to Consecutive," meaning the three convictions were to run concurrently.
Tabish received another parole hearing in Las Vegas on January 13, The Nevada Board of Parole Commissioners announced January 26, that Tabish, 44, would be granted parole.
Tabish was released on May 18, His parole started on April 2, , but negotiating the terms of his release delayed his actual exit from prison.
A prosecution death theory, which the jury ultimately rejected, formed the basis for "Burked" , a September 27, episode of the TV series CSI.
After the jury in the re-trial found Tabish and Murphy not guilty of murder  news accounts reported that jurors had been unwilling to find them guilty because the forensic evidence introduced by the prosecution had not met the standards of the television show.
The case was covered extensively in Death in the Desert ,  a biographical true crime book by author Cathy Scott , in Positively Fifth Street  by James McManus , which is about a poker tournament at the Binion family's Horseshoe, and in An Early Grave , by Gary C.
King and released in as part of the 'St. Martin's True Crime Classics' series. The case was also covered in the made-for-TV movie Sex and Lies in Sin City , originally said to be based on the book Murder in Sin City by columnist Jeff German which took the prosecution's point of view.
However, the movie title and storyline were changed to allow for other theories about Binion's death. Las Vegas columnist John L.
Smith published a pictorial summary of the case titled Quicksilver. The second edition of Death in the Desert , released in , covers the re-trial and acquittals, as well as An Early Grave' s re-release in with appendices about the re-trial and acquittals.
Coverage can also be found at trutv. The TV show "On the Case" covered the case in its episode 12, aired November 22, Contains much unique footage, including exclusive interviews with Sandra Murphy and shots of the histrionics of her lawyer Tony Serra during the second trial.
The seventh episode of the CBS legal comedy-drama The Defenders TV series titled "Las Vegas v. Johnson" was a loosely depicted version of the trial.

Becky's presidency saw the casino sink into debt. Ted was under nearly constant scrutiny from the Nevada Gaming Commission from onwards for his involvement in drugs and associating with known mob figures.
His gaming license was revoked in , and he died in mysterious circumstances about a decade later. Ted's live-in girlfriend Sandra Murphy and a man with whom she was having an affair Rick Tabish were charged and convicted of his murder, but the verdict was later overturned.
They were retried and acquitted. In January , Binion arranged for Johnny Moss and " Nick the Greek " Dandalos to play a head-to-head poker tournament which ended up lasting five months, with Nick the Greek ultimately losing a reported two million dollars.
The year-old Moss had to take breaks to sleep occasionally, during which the Greek, then 57, went over to the craps table and played.
After the final hand, and losing millions of dollars, Nick the Greek uttered one of the most famous poker quotes of all time, "Mr.
Moss, I have to let you go. Binion didn't operate a casino until in Las Vegas. In , after years of arranging heads-up matches between high-stakes players, Binion invited six players to compete in a tournament.
Johnny Moss, then 63, was voted champion by his younger competition and received a small trophy. Binion's creation of the World Series helped the game of poker spread and become popular.
Binion himself greatly underestimated how popular the World Series would become. In , he speculated that eventually the tournament might have 50 or so entrants.
Benny never forgot his Texas roots and was a key player in getting the National Finals Rodeo to move to Las Vegas. He never forgot the cowboys after they arrived; he always paid the entry fees for all of the cowboys for their championship event.
When the casino closed, Boyd Gaming took up the tradition that Binion started by continuing to pay all the entry fees. Every year during the NFR there is a large rodeo stock auction called "Benny Binion's World Famous Bucking Horse and Bull Sale.
Benny Binion was also the owner of a horse named "Nigger" later referred to as "Benny Binion's Gelding" who was the , and National Cutting Horse Association NCHA World Champion.
Binion died of heart failure at the age of 85 on December 5, in Las Vegas. Relativity Media bought the screen rights to the book Blood Aces: The Wild Ride Of Benny Binion to be written for the screen by Cliff Dorfman , which will be a biopic on Binion's life.
