LAS VEGAS (AP) — A Las Vegas man has been arrested after the discovery of his wife’s body in a home at Nellis Air Force Base.
Police say 32-year-old Rickey Massey Jr. and his wife had been involved in a domestic dispute hours before her body was found in the garage of a home Friday morning.
Massey was taken into custody inside the home without incident and booked into the Clark County jail on a charge of open murder.
Police say the victim appeared to have suffered blunt force trauma, but her cause of death will be released after an autopsy by the coroner’s office.
Her name wasn’t immediately released.
Police say Massey had no prior criminal history record in Las Vegas.
