LAS VEGAS (AP) - Las Vegas police say the 26-year-old girlfriend of a man found dead near the gate of an apartment complex where they lived together has been arrested in his slaying.

Police say Lahtijera (lah-tee-AIR’-ah) Howard was arrested Thursday in the Wednesday death of 34-year-old Darryl White at the complex near Bonanza and Pecos roads.

Authorities say White had injuries suggesting he’d been hit by a vehicle, and that Howard’s vehicle was found in a nearby parking lot with damage from a recent crash.

The Clark County coroner says a cause of death is pending.

Records showed that Howard was being held without bail on a murder charge at the Clark County jail in Las Vegas.

She is expected to have an attorney appointed to her case at her first court appearance.
