AVONDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Authorities said a man suspected of fatally shooting a woman west of Phoenix has been arrested in Nevada.

Avondale police said 41-year-old Michael Hall was taken into custody early Tuesday in the parking lot of a Las Vegas hotel.

The Arizona Republic reported that Hall remains in Las Vegas Metropolitan Police custody awaiting extradition to Arizona.

Avondale police said 28-year-old Donella Caluschee was found dead on the floor of a garage Monday morning.

They said the garage door was open and the woman had been shot in the head.

Authorities said Caluschee's 5-year-old daughter was found unharmed and sitting inside her mother's car.

A motive for the shooting remains unclear, but authorities said Hall is believed to be Caluschee's ex-boyfriend.
