LAS VEGAS (AP) — Las Vegas police say a 21-year-old woman accused of killing a man after they fought over a game of dice has been arrested in Ogden, Utah.

Authorities say Anishya Douglas was arrested Wednesday afternoon and will remain in Utah while she waits for extradition to Nevada.

Police say 24-year-old Christopher Dewayne Jones Jr. was found dead in an apartment on North Marion Drive the afternoon of Aug. 6. Clark County coroner's officials say he died of multiple gunshot wounds.

Investigators say Douglas and the victim had been in a fight the day earlier over money and a game of dice.

Police say it appears Douglas showed up the next day to confront the victim about their previous argument and shot him multiple times during an argument.
