LAS VEGAS (AP) - Officials have identified a 41-year-old man dead after being run over by his live-in girlfriend in their Las Vegas driveway.
The Clark County coroner's office says Conrado Martinez Mendoza died after the incident Monday night on Mammoth Creek Drive, near the intersection of Tropicana and Buffalo.
Police have arrested Mendoza's 33-year-old girlfriend, Sounilak Ouchlaeun, on suspicion of murder.
Detectives say the couple had been fighting when the woman got into her car, which was parked in the garage.
Witnesses told police Martinez was standing behind the car, banging on it and telling his girlfriend not to leave when she backed it out and ran over him.
