10/20/2000Order/DispositionalFiled Dispositional Order/Appeal. Order of Reversal and Remand. Although we conclude that the issues raised by Jones in this appeal lack merit, we hold that reversal is warranted because of our conclusion in DeChant v. State, 116 Nev. ___, ___ P.3d ___ (Adv. Op. No. 100, October 19, 2000). As DeChant and Jones were tried together, these errors also impared Jones's right to a fair trial. "REVERSE and REMAND for a new trial." SNP99B-WM/MS/NB 00-18603
