Nevada prosecutors have filed 11 felony counts against OJ and his alleged cohorts for stealing memorabilia in Las Vegas last week, CNN reports. Charges include robbery with a deadly weapon, assault with a deadly weapon and first-degree kidnapping. Simpson, who is being held without bail, will face his first court appearance tomorrow morning.

One victim in the alleged heist, Bruce Fromong, has had a heart attack and is now in critical condition at a Los Angeles hospital. Also in LA, a judge has denied Ron Goldman's father the right to take OJ's past earnings. Instead, he asked the Goldman lawyer to supply him with a list of items the ex-football phenom reportedly stole in Vegas last week. (Read more OJ Simpson stories.)
