Las Vegas Metro police say two suspects in a Las Vegas slaying have been arrested in New Orleans, LA, and are awaiting extradition to Las Vegas.
Majunique Brown, 30, and Marshan Bowden, 22, both of Las Vegas, face charges including murder, kidnapping and robbery with a deadly weapon.
On Jan. 7 around 1 p.m., a motorist near an Interstate 40 off-ramp in Kingman, AZ, reported a small fire to Arizona authorities. After putting the blaze out, firefighters discovered the body of Jason Byes, 33, of Las Vegas.
It turned out Byes had been reported missing in Las Vegas the same day.
Police believe Brown and Bowden killed Byes in an apartment complex on Lewis Avenue near downtown Las Vegas on Jan. 6 before dumping and burning his body near Kingman.
The two then fled to New Orleans.
The FBI and New Orleans police took the two into custody without incident on Jan. 8.
Brown was additionally charged with possession of a stolen vehicle.
Police said the investigation is ongoing and anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
