LAS VEGAS (AP) - Police in Las Vegas have arrested a 21-year-old man on a murder charge in the death of a young woman whose burned body was found last weekend at an apartment complex near the busy Spaghetti Bowl freeway interchange.

Raymond Quinsell Lewis IV was arrested Thursday, shortly after the slain woman was identified as 20-year-old Geronique Bentley.

It wasn’t immediately clear from jail records whether Lewis had an attorney, pending an initial court appearance.

The Clark County coroner said Friday it will take several weeks to determine Bentley’s cause of death.

Police circulated a sketch to help identify Bentley after residents noticed burn marks on a wall and found her partially burned body March 11 in a remote corner of the complex off Rock Springs Drive.
