A man wanted in the killing of a 39-year-old Las Vegas woman was jailed Wednesday.
Lun Simon, 43, was booked at the Clark County Detention Center on charges of murder with a deadly weapon and burglary while in possession of a deadly weapon.
Las Vegas police officers took Simon into custody Wednesday morning after he walked into a Dotty’s at 4213 Boulder Highway about 7:45 a.m. and talked about having a warrant out for his arrest and wanting to turn himself in.
Simon was wanted in connection with the death of Jasmine Rochell Haley, found Jan. 25 with gunshot wounds at a residence on the 3500 block of Morning Mist Drive. She was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.
The investigation determined that a gathering occurred at the residence before Haley was found.
A police report obtained by the Las Vegas Review-Journal on Thursday said Haley, her roommate Simon, Jason Tureaud and a couple were at the gathering. Haley’s roommate Mark Harry told police that Simon was Haley’s methamphetamine dealer and that Tureaud was a marijuana dealer.
The couple and Harry left the gathering at separate times, leaving Haley, Simon and Tureaud at the residence. Tureaud told police that while he was sitting on the couch, he saw Haley and Simon in the kitchen. Simon appeared upset and was pacing back and forth. Tureaud heard two gunshots and saw Haley on the kitchen floor as Simon silently walked out of the residence, the report said.
The motive behind the shooting is unclear.
