NLV Murder Suspect Held on $1M Bail

NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. -- Bail has been set at $1 million for a North Las Vegas man who is accused of killing his wife.

Police say 57-year-old Douglas Jones beat his wife, Shaunna Jones, in late December but she died from her injuries on Friday.

Paramedics had urged 53-year-old Shaunna Jones to go to the hospital after the alleged beating on Dec. 28 but she refused. Jones was found dead in her home on Jan. 6 by her son.

The Clark County Coroner's office determined that she had died from blunt force trauma to the head.
