Police: Man arrested in July 2019 homicide case

Local News

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Authorities say a suspect has been arrested in connection with a homicide case last year.

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police say they arrested 38-year-old Carlos Figueroa Friday on an outstanding felony warrant. He was taken into custody following a standoff that ended once he agreed to exit the apartment he was residing in.

Police say the body of 29-year-old Natelie Carbajal was found burning in the desert a mile east of Seven Magic Mountains on July 4, 2019.

An autopsy showed she died from a gunshot wound to the head and the death was ruled a homicide.

Family members say Carbajal gave birth to a baby girl only a few months before she was killed.

Figueroa is being held without bail and scheduled to appear in court Monday.
