LAS VEGAS (AP) — Prosecutors have asked a judge to throw out the testimony of a key witness in a federal racketeering trial stemming from a 2011 shootout killing a Hells Angels leader in a Nevada casino.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported Thursday that Gary "Jabbers" Rudnick lied after spending more than three days telling jurors that members of the Vagos Motorcycle Club had plotted to kill a rival biker in Sparks.

Officials say the eight men standing trial represent the first group of 21 defendants that prosecutors say were involved in crimes in California, Arizona, Hawaii, Oregon, Utah and Nevada.

Prosecutors say there are doubts as to whether the witness will be truthful.

Defense attorneys for the men have asked to have the murder and racketeering charges thrown out.
