LAS VEGAS (AP) — Las Vegas police have arrested a 23-year-old man who reportedly admitted killing his girlfriend after hearing voices is his head.
Authorities say Christopher Salguero was arrested Thursday and booked on suspicion of murder in the death of 25-year-old Amber Peirson.
Police say Peirson’s roommate called them a week earlier when he found her lying in a pool of blood. She was pronounced dead from stab wounds.
Detectives say they went to Salguero’s parents’ house, where Salguero lived, and found bloody shoes and shorts in his bedroom.
Authorities say Salguero’s father was distraught the woman was dead and told them he’d warned police something like this would happen.
Police say Salguero later called his father and admitted to the killing, saying he’d heard voices telling him his girlfriend was a witch.
