Man charged with murder in stabbing death


A man has been arrested in the stabbing death of another man found in a pickup in the southwest Valley on Thursday.

Bryan David Dula, 31, was arrested and charged with murder with a deadly weapon in the death of 28-year-old Robert Wagner Jr. of Las Vegas.

The slaying was likely drug-related, Las Vegas police said Tuesday.

Wagner died of multiple stab wounds and his death was ruled a homicide, the coroner's office said.

His family, who reported him missing earlier in the day, was searching in the area in which he was found.

His body was found near the intersection of Durango Drive and Wigwam Avenue, near state Route 160 about 1:30 p.m.
