LAS VEGAS (AP) — A head injury killed a woman whose body was found with severed legs in the bathtub of a North Las Vegas home where her brother is accused of killing her and their mother.

The Clark County coroner corrected earlier reports and said Thursday that Natasha Nicolle Sorrells was 34 when she died last week.

North Las Vegas police had said she was 33.

The coroner hasn't said what killed the mother, Janice Burden.

Burden's body was found wrapped in plastic sheeting in the living room of the stucco home about 9 miles north of downtown Las Vegas.

Police say 30-year-old Darius Davon Sorrells killed the women before beginning to dismember his sister's corpse.

He's jailed awaiting a court appearance.

Police say they found a bloody chain saw in the house.
