Around 11:30 a.m. Monday, officers were dispatched to the 1600 block of West Brooks Avenue, near Martin Luther King Boulevard, in reference to a possible body found. Officers located a deceased 56-year-old man lying outside a trailer near the back of the lot.
The preliminary investigation indicates the deceased man had been roommates with 39-year-old Paula Wynant, in a trailer on the property. Detectives learned there was a disagreement between Wynant and the deceased man which led to a physical altercation just outside the residence which left the 56-year-old man deceased on scene.
Wynant was subsequently booked at the Las Vegas City Detention Center for the charge of murder with a deadly weapon.
The coroner's office identified the man killed as Arthur J. Noble of North Las Vegas. The coroner said he died of multiple injuries but did not specify what those were.
Anyone with information regarding this incident is urged to call the North Las Vegas Police Department at 702-633-9111 or, to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
