Joseph "Elvis Joe" Levine spent almost 30 years dealing the World Series of Poker. The 56-year-old will be missed and remembered by those who sat at his game while he dealt the yearly tournament and other occasions where Levine put his own special twist into the art of dealing. He was shot and killed in his home last week.

The arrest report shows that 30-year-old Marjorie Fiora is the primary suspect in the shooting and has been taken into custody. The police were informed by Joseph's brother, Arnold Levine, that Fiora went inside Joe's residence, where he was cleaning, after swimming in the pool. Arnold said Fiora was holding a double-barreled shotgun after Arnold heard a loud bang that came from inside the house.

The report went on to say that Joe Levine died from a gunshot wound in the chest after he was rushed to University Medical Center.

Apparently Fiora ran from the house with no clothing on as she yelled, "I have to kill him" to Levine's brothers after she was disarmed by them, according to the Las Vegas police. Fiora broke into a residence that was close by and stole a dress and that's where the police found her. The charges against Fiora are burglary, murder, and home invasion according to the reports.

The poker community was in shock over Levine's death and took to Twitter to express the loss they feel over one of poker's colorful personalities:
