April 5, 2018

NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) — A 39-year-old Nevada woman has been arrested as a suspect in a homicide at a trailer in North Las Vegas.

Police say Paula Wynant was booked into the Las Vegas Detention Center Monday on suspicion of murder with a deadly weapon.

North Las Vegas police said in a statement Thursday that she had been living with the 56-year-old male victim in a trailer about 3 miles north of the Las Vegas Strip.

Detectives believe a disagreement between the two roommates led to a physical altercation just outside the residence that left the man dead.

Officers were called to the scene and found his body lying outside the trailer at about 11:30 a.m. Monday.

The victim’s name has not been released.

It’s not clear if Wynant has a lawyer or will be appointed one at a pending court appearance.
