(KSL News) A Utah man has been arrested on suspicion of killing a woman in a Nevada hotel room.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports that U.S. Marshals arrested Ernest Kent Simkins yesterday. He's accused of killing a woman last April in the Peppermill Hotel in West Wendover.

Her body was found in a hot tub in one of the hotel's rooms. Simkins was also in the room, and investigators say the woman's injuries were not consistent with his story.
