LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — A man is in custody for allegedly killing his girlfriend Thursday morning.
Metro Police originally responded to the call of a woman unresponsive in the backyard of an abandoned house in the 400 block of Harrison Avenue, near I-15.
The woman was later pronounced dead by medical personnel at the scene.
After an investigation, police say it was determined the victim had been in an argument with her boyfriend — 47-year-old Armondo Washington. They say Washington battered his girlfriend with a blunt object during the argument.
Washington was taken into custody at the scene and was booked into the Clark County Detention Center on a charge of open murder.
