Almost four years after Charles Thomas Deishley was found shot dead in his Las Vegas home, a woman has been arrested for the murder.
Deishley, who was 70 when police found him dead in December 2013 during a welfare check, was best known for playing General Motog at “Star Trek: The Experience” for a decade.
Kelleen Cota, 57, was arrested Thursday for murder with a deadly weapon and conspiracy to commit murder.

Cota was indicted last August, along with Janette Anais Martinez and James Anthony Martinez-Amador, on charges of racketeering, embezzlement, forgery, obtaining money under false pretenses and grand larceny.
Prosecutors said the trio tricked Deishley into investing in shell companies that they claimed were billboards, coins, gold and real estate, according to the Las Vegas Journal-Review.
