Updated March 13, 2023 - 2:46 pm

A 39-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of murder after his wife, who had been burned, cut and bruised, was found dead Saturday morning, the Metropolitan Police Department said.

Metro police said in a statement released Sunday that officers responded to the 9100 block of Las Vegas Boulevard South to “assist medical personnel in a suspicious death” at about 10:10 a.m. Saturday.

“Responding officers located an adult female victim suffering from apparent cuts, burns, and bruises,” the police statement said.

Latonia Joi Clark, 41, of Las Vegas, was found dead in the bedroom and died of multiple blunt force injuries, the Clark County coroner’s office said on Monday.

Homicide detectives also responded because of the suspected foul play.

Anthony Clark, 39, was taken into custody and booked into the Clark County Detention Center on one count of open murder. Police described Clark as the woman’s husband.

The investigation was ongoing Sunday.
