1908 Reno, Washoe County Murder Case

I'm hoping someone can direct me about how to obtain court records of a very old murder trial that happened in Reno, Washoe County in 1908. My g-grandfather (Angelo Gregory Setaro) was murdered in May 1908 and his murderer (W. Stanley Peek), who admitted to the crime of passion, stood trial and was acquitted. The media sensationalized the voluminous newspaper accounts (which our family doesn't believe) however, I'm interested in the actual court and/or sheriff's investigative records.

Years ago, I did make some calls, but I was unsuccessful getting anywhere. Does anyone have suggestions?

Thank you.
