LAS VEGAS (AP) — A 32-year-old Las Vegas man is due for an initial court appearance in the slaying of his wife in the garage of a home at Nellis Air Force Base.
Rickey L. Massey Jr. was being held at the Clark County jail pending an appearance Tuesday before a judge on an open murder charge.
Police say Massey was in the home when Nellis security personnel arrived Friday morning and found the woman dead.
The woman's name and cause of death weren't immediately made public.
It wasn't clear if Massey or the woman or both were military personnel.
Police said the woman and Massey had been involved in a domestic dispute hours before her body was found, and she appeared to have been beaten to death.
