Police have arrested a man in connection with the death of a 47-year-old woman this morning in North Las Vegas.
Authorities responded just before 6 a.m. to a home in the 3200 block of Atwater Drive, which is near the intersection of West Alexander Road and North Simmons Street. Bedwell said the woman was taken from the scene to University Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead.
Bobby Dale Richards, 40, was arrested on suspicion of murder with a deadly weapon after giving voluntary statements to detectives regarding the woman’s death, North Las Vegas Police spokesman Tim Bedwell said.
Bedwell said the death appeared to be domestic violence-related, but police weren't releasing other circumstances surrounding the investigation. The Clark County Coroner’s Office will release the woman’s identity after notification of family members.
Richards has been booked into the North Las Vegas Detention Center without bail.
This is the sixth homicide this year in North Las Vegas.
CORRECTION: The victim's age has been changed in the story to 47, instead of 37. Authorities initially had reported an incorrect age for the woman. | (April 16, 2010)
