LAS VEGAS (AP) — A grand jury is reviewing the case of a California youth pastor accused of murder after an altercation outside a Las Vegas pub.

News of the secret proceedings was revealed Wednesday during a Las Vegas court hearing for 35-year-old Robert Lynn Cox.

"Due to the fact that there is an active and ongoing grand jury investigation, the state will be making no comment," said Tess Driver, spokeswoman for Clark County District Attorney Steve Wolfson.

It's unclear when the jury will decide whether to indict Cox in the death of 55-year-old Link Ellingson, who died of hemorrhaging about six months after the June 13, 2013, confrontation outside the Four Kegs pub.

Cox says he was traveling with members of his Manteca church and stopped for a late-night dinner when Ellingson approached the group and assaulted them. Group members said Cox grabbed the man and both fell.

Ellingson hit his head and later died.

Las Vegas police say Cox initially said he punched Ellingson.
