Jury sentences Tiaffay to life without parole for murder of spouse

The local hero ended up being a killer.

George Tiaffay grew up on a chicken cattle ranch, which he helped tend as a child after his daddy died. He became a high school valedictorian and finished from the U.S. Military college at West Point. He acted as a Las Vegas firefighter. Other firefighters said he was “among the very best in the field.”

He appeared to have a grip on life.

However by 2012, his marital relationship to Shauna Tiaffay was falling apart. He lost control of the woman friends said he controlled and verbally mistreated, and his financial resources were at risk in their looming divorce.

And on Sept. 29 of that year, he walked his 8-year-old child, Madison, into his better half’s Summerlin home, prosecutors stated, understanding that the 46-year-old Palms waitress was dead inside.

George Tiaffay had hired a homeless man named Noel “Greyhound” Stevens to bludgeon her with a hammer. They invested weeks planning out the killing, authorities said. The idea had been stewing in Tiaffay’s mind for months, if not longer.

“That was probably the difficulty for everyone in this case,” prosecutor Marc DiGiacomo said. “Can you actually comprehend a man with this history committing this crime? And there’s no question he committed this crime. And if you dedicate this criminal activity, you absolutely should have life without (parole).”

A Clark County jury concurred Friday, choosing that Tiaffay, now 43, must spend the rest of his life behind bars with no possibility of parole.

A day earlier, the 7 guys and five women found him guilty of first-degree murder and six other counts in Shauna Tiaffay’s death.

He is arranged to be sentenced on the other charges next month.

In the weeks prior to the slaying, the confessed gunman and George Tiaffay were recorded on security video buying dark clothing, a hammer and a knife, though the tools were not those made use of in the slaying.

Stevens stated he made a number of dry runs prior to he eliminated Shauna Tiaffay, at one point burglarizing her apartment or condo. He affirmed that during among those dry runs, he ran into policeman who seized what they took to be robbery devices.

“Think of the variety of times that he had the chance to end this,” DiGiacomo told jurors Friday. “There’s at least 30 days of premeditation and deliberation. Thirty days for the hero to stop Noel Stevens. … This was a despicable act performed in a despicable and vicious way.”

Stevens affirmed George Tiaffay informed him to kill, however defense lawyer Robert Langford attempted to repaint Stevens as a psychotic phony. On Friday, Langford asked jurors for grace and to provide Tiaffay a possibility at parole. Langford said Tiaffay would appeal the conviction and sentence.

Stevens has pleaded guilty and is to be sentenced after Tiaffay.

Prosecutors said Tiaffay controlled Stevens. “Noel was George’s hammer,” DiGiacomo said.

The firefighter frantically attempted to get in touch with Stevens by phone after the murder.

Tiaffay had actually purchased a gun, which district attorneys suggested he intended to make use of to kill Stevens.

Tiaffay knew Stevens would not stay peaceful for long, however the gunman had actually currently boasted to a buddy, and Stevens was detained prior to Tiaffay saw him again.

Years earlier, Stevens had actually met Tiaffay while he was walking his dog. Stevens provided to carry out odd jobs for a few bucks, and the 2 became pals.

At some time in early 2012, Tiaffay discussed having his partner killed. He ultimately provided $5,000, said Stevens, who just got about $600.

Shauna Tiaffay had actually been dead for hours by the time her hubby and daughter came to her apartment.

Her body was cold and stiff, and blood stained the carpeting around her. Her right hand was broken, with the rings on her fingers smashed. A hole from a hammer blow to the side of her head was so deep paramedics at first believed she had been shot.

The little lady was with her father due to the fact that he wished to appear innocent.

“If you don’t think that act in and of itself made him life without,” DiGiacomo said, “consider exactly what it did to Madison.”

In his backyard, Tiaffay and Stevens had erected part of a jungle health club for his child.

In the bottom right-hand corner of the dark brown panel, the girl had scrawled 3 stick figures in white chalk.

Her family.
