LAS VEGAS (AP) — A 27-year-old man who called 911 and said he’d killed his live-in girlfriend is jailed in Las Vegas on a murder with a deadly weapon charge.

Joseph Barrera was arrested a little before 7 p.m. Sunday after police arrived and found 35-year-old Misty Pusieski dead with stab wounds to the neck in an apartment several blocks east of the Las Vegas Strip.

Barrera is being held without bail at the Clark County jail pending a Tuesday court appearance.

Police initially reported an incorrect age for Barrera.
