Nevada Revised Statutes Section 175.311 - Procedure in Criminal Cases

Procedure when higher offense is shown by evidence. If it appears by the testimony that the facts proved constitute an offense of a higher nature than that charged in the indictment or information, the court may direct the jury to be discharged, and all proceedings on the indictment or information to be suspended, and may order the defendant to be committed, or continued on, or admitted to bail, to answer any new indictment or information which may be found or filed against him for the higher offense.
