Coroner IDs Las Vegas man suspected of killing wife, self

Updated May 4, 2017 - 6:34 pm

The couple involved in an apparent murder-suicide at a northwest Las Vegas apartment complex Wednesday morning has been identified.

The Clark County coroner identified the man as 54-year-old Jason Charles Robertson of Las Vegas, and his death has been ruled a suicide. Police said the man called 911 to report a suicide about 3:15 a.m. Wednesday at the Tivoli Apartments, 4650 N. Rainbow Blvd.

When police arrived, they found Robertson and a woman dead with gunshot wounds.

The woman has since been identified as 52-year-old Jodeane Robertson, the coroner’s office said. She died of multiple gunshot wounds and her death has been ruled a homicide.

A neighbor told police that she heard two gunshots — one apparently before the 911 call and another after. That suggests the man shot the woman, called 911 and then killed himself, Metropolitan Police Department Lt. Dan McGrath said Wednesday.

Police believe the two were married.
