HEAD, NECK INJURIES

Golf cart crash kills boy, 12, in Henderson

A 12-year-old Henderson boy died Friday after being thrown from a golf cart at the Anthem Country Club, Henderson police said Monday.

The coroner’s office identified the boy as Josh Stevens and said the cause of death was blunt force trauma to the boy’s head and neck.

Police said the accident occurred at 10 p.m. The boy’s father, whom police did not identify, was driving on a private street on the golf course when he came upon a parked trailer with a boat. The man swerved to avoid hitting the boat. The golf cart went up on two wheels, and both he and his son were ejected.

The boy was taken to St. Rose Dominican Hospital, Sienna Campus, and died a short time later.

Henderson police spokesman Keith Paul said the accident is being investigated. The driver of the golf cart was not cited or arrested. Paul said the man submitted to a blood test after the accident.

FATAL CONFRONTATION

Victim in stabbing was 21-year-old man

The man stabbed to death Sunday after a confrontation with a former roommate was identified by the coroner’s office Monday as 21-year-old Martin James Moore.

The suspect, whose name was not released by Las Vegas police, was arrested late Sunday in connection with the slaying. Police said the stabbing occurred at 7:13 p.m. at a residence in the 2100 block of Birch Leaf Circle, near Nellis and Lake Mead boulevards.

Police said Moore was home with his girlfriend and left to go to the store. When he returned, he was confronted by the suspect, police said. The two men argued before Moore was stabbed in the chest, authorities said.

EARLY MORNING ARGUMENT

Coroner’s office IDs woman slain at Bally’s

The woman killed Friday after an early morning argument at Bally’s has been identified by the Clark County coroner’s office as Talesha Jamerson, 24.

Jamerson was fatally stabbed in the neck in the resort’s reception area at 6 a.m. She managed to walk out of the resort, but then collapsed and was taken to Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center, where she died.

Police did not specify where Jamerson lived.

Las Vegas police said Jamerson was seen walking into Bally’s with another woman, 23-year-old Latrovia Reed, a Milwaukee woman arrested in connection with the slaying.

Reed was booked into the Clark County Detention Center on a charge of murder with a deadly weapon and is being held without bail.

STATE ROUTE 68 ACCIDENT

Wreck victim identified as Arizona teenager

A Golden Valley, Ariz., teenager who was killed Saturday in a single-vehicle accident on State Route 68 has been identified by authorities as Douglas Campbell, 18.

Campbell died at the scene of the 9:10 p.m. accident, which happened about six miles east of Bullhead City, according to the Department of Public Safety.

Department officials said the driver and three other passengers were taken to area hospitals to be treated for their injuries.

Investigators are still trying to determine why the driver lost control of the westbound 1998 Ford Ranger pickup.

INTERSTATE 40 ACCIDENT

Arizona wreck victim was California man

Arizona authorities have identified the San Miguel, Calif., man who suffered fatal injuries in a single-vehicle wreck Saturday in Kingman, Ariz.

Jag Talwar, 76, died at the scene of the accident on Interstate 40, according to the Department of Public Safety.

Officials said Talwar lost control of his eastbound 2002 Buick at 10:42 a.m. while trying to avoid a vehicle making a lane change. The Buick rolled several times after veering into the median.

DOWNTOWN SITE

Groundbreaking held for new Kingman jail

Dignitaries swung sledgehammers on rock at a Monday groundbreaking where a new Mohave County jail is being built in downtown Kingman, Ariz.

The jail site overlooks the new county complex and separate sheriff’s office facility, which have been constructed in recent years with revenue generated from a 1/4-cent sales tax.

Texas-based Faulkner USA will build the $72 million facility, which will replace the smaller jail that opened a couple of miles away in 1986.

The 242,000-square-foot jail will include 688 beds but is designed to be expanded to accommodate up to 1,100 inmates when needed.

Project manager Andrew Shetter said construction completion is expected in November 2009.

SHOOTING RAMPAGE

California city to hold vigil for slain officer

Officials in Martinez, Calif., on Monday announced they would hold a vigil Wednesday for a police officer slain over the weekend.

As his estranged wife’s cousin lay dead in a kitchen, Felix Sandoval Jr. poked a gun from behind a door and opened fire, killing a police officer before being slain by another officer, Martinez police said.

Sandoval, 49, went on a rampage Saturday morning, enraged that his wife, Margarita Sandoval, had accused him of being abusive, witnesses said.

He tried to track down his wife at her business, Elegant Hair Design, about 11:30 a.m. While she hid in her shop, he moved on to her apartment, Martinez police Chief Tom Simonetti said.

There, Sandoval confronted at least two women and three children, fatally shooting Catalina Torres, 44, police said. Torres was a volunteer advocate for battered women in Concord, friends said.

When officers came upon the scene, Sandoval poked a gun out from behind the door and fatally shot Paul Starzyk, a 47-year-old sergeant.
