A mother and her son were arrested earlier this week in connection with the slaying of a 69-year-old man, North Las Vegas police said.
Police said Rosemary Vandecar, 54, and Daniel Vandecar, 25, were booked into the North Las Vegas Detention Center Tuesday on one count each of murder of a victim over 60 years old. Police said the two were live-in caretakers for the victim.
The Clark County coroner's office identified the victim as Roy Schutzler of North Las Vegas. The medical examiner found evidence of strangulation, police said.
Police said they found Schutzler unresponsive Monday morning in an apartment at 770 West Lone Mountain Road, near Camino Al Norte. Police have not determined a motive.
