LAS VEGAS (AP) - According to law enforcement documents, a woman wanted on fraud and theft charges jumped 35 floors to her death at a Las Vegas hotel just as two criminal investigators entered her room to arrest her.

A search warrant released Friday shows the investigators from the Secretary of State Office's Securities Division forced their way into Elizabeth DeMaria's room at the MGM Grand on Tuesday and saw her throw a laptop computer off the balcony before jumping herself.

The 46-year-old DeMaria was charged in 2010 with 11 counts of fraud and 11 counts of theft.

She was accused of conning nine victims out of $200,000 by telling them they were investing in a media company called The Vegas Channel.

Authorities say she allegedly bought luxury items for herself instead.
