LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) – Two Las Vegas women are facing a September murder trial following the death of a 101-year-old veteran nearly one year ago.

Herbert Muskin, 101, was driving home from the store with his wife on March 1, 2023, and was stopped at a red light when his car was hit from behind at the intersection of Stephanie St. and Sunset Rd. in Henderson. Three female robbery suspects were in a car running from police during a high-speed chase.

Two of the women, Kassandra Alvarez and Lorraine Alvarado, now face felony murder charges in Muskin’s death. The World War II veteran’s wife was also injured in the crash.

“In five seconds, my life changed,” Sherry Muskin told FOX5. “I’m a basket case.”

Her husband suffered a broken neck in the crash and died later that month.

Sherry is now struggling financially after her husband’s death. The family has set up a fundraising page and you can learn more about it here.

Alvarez and Alvarado have a pretrial appearance in Clark County District Court scheduled for April 3. Their trial is set to begin on Sept. 30, with each facing over a dozen felony charges, including robbery, murder and conspiracy to commit murder.
