ELKO, Nev. (AP) — A 38-year-old Elko man has been arrested on suspicion of felony drunk driving in an apparent hunting accident that claimed the life of his girlfriend.

Elko County Undersheriff Clair Morris told KENV-TV (http://tinyurl.com/qxqdz7u ) that 46-year-old Kelli Cantrell died from injuries she suffered Wednesday night when she was struck by a pickup driven by her boyfriend, Jason Frazier.

Morris says the two had hunting tags and apparently had been using scopes to look for elk and mule deer before the accident about 7:30 p.m. near the historic Winecup Ranch 25 miles north of Wells.

Authorities say the two worked at a local gold mine and had been living together.

Frazier is being held the Elko County Jail on suspicion of felony DUI causing death. His bail is set at $100,000.
