LAS VEGAS (AP) - A 61-year-old Las Vegas man faces a murder charge after police say he fatally beat his girlfriend with a beer mug.

Dana "Doc" Baker was arrested Friday after his live-in girlfriend, Jennifer Evanson, was found bleeding from the head in her motor home. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Baker told police he and Evanson got into an argument and he hit her over the head with the glass seven or eight times.

He reportedly told officers he left her lying on the floor for about two hours before she asked him to call 911.

Baker told police he called for help then fled out of fear. Authorities found him and some bloody clothes in a tent in the desert.

Baker told officers he didn't intend to kill Evanson.
