Coroner IDs 2 Dead in Las Vegas Murder-Suicide

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Authorities have identified a man and a woman who died in a murder-suicide this week at a south Las Vegas home.

Clark County coroner's officials say 31-year-old Daniela Gastelum-Gutierrez died of a gunshot wound to the head and shotgun wounds to the chest and abdomen.

Thirty-two-year-old Jacob P. Burkett died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.

Las Vegas police say a child called 911 about 7 p.m. Wednesday to report her mother was asking for help. Authorities say they found the house on Encore Way barricaded, and the two were later found dead inside.

Police Lt. Ken Romane says the two were boyfriend and girlfriend and had a child together. There was no indication that the child was hurt.
