No Bail for Las Vegas Man Accused of Killing Wife

LAS VEGAS  -- A 32-year-old Las Vegas man who is accused of killing his wife in the garage of a home at Nellis Air Force Base did not get bail in a Tuesday morning court appearance.

Rickey L. Massey Jr. made his initial appearance in Las Vegas Justice Court. He is facing an open murder charge.

Police say Massey, an airman, was in the home when Nellis security personnel arrived Friday morning and found the woman dead.

The Clark County Coroner's Office has identified the woman as 34-year-old Theresa Rivera and her cause of death as asphyxia.

Police said the woman and Massey had been involved in a domestic dispute hours before her body was found, and she appeared to have been beaten to death.

Associated Press contributed to this report.
