LAS VEGAS -- Anishya Douglas was brought back to Las Vegas from Utah Saturday. Douglas, is accused of shooting and killing 24-year-old Christopher Dewayne Jones Jr.

Detectives said back on  Aug. 6 Douglas, 21, and Jones had a physical altercation with each other.

Police believe the pair were fighting over money and a game of dice played a day before the shooting. According to the arrest report, one witness said Jones accused Douglas of cheating before he allegedly beat her and took $80 out of her pocket.

On the day of the shooting, detectives believe Douglas came to Jones' apartment to confront him. The fight escalated and Douglas pulled out a handgun shooting Jones several times, detectives said.

Shortly after the shooting, police said Douglas went on the run, but she was picked up several days later on Aug. 13 in Ogden, UT. Douglas was booked into the Clark County jail Friday where she is being held on a $10,000 bond.
