LAS VEGAS (AP) — Las Vegas police say an 18-year-old man arrested in a home-invasion robbery in which a woman was killed left his high school homework in the getaway car.

A newly released police report said math homework bearing Kamari Oliver's name was found in a backpack in the vehicle after the victim's boyfriend saw robbers leaving the home and rammed their vehicle with his own on March 25.
