LAS VEGAS (AP) - Authorities have identified a pair involved in a Las Vegas murder-suicide as a Henderson man and a Las Vegas woman.

The Clark County Coroner's Office says the man was 29-year-old Luis Montiel and the woman was 18-year-old Vanniesa Fernandez.

Police say the bodies of the two were found Friday afternoon in a unit at the Mark 1 Apartments in central Las Vegas and it appears they died earlier Friday.

They say it also appears the man killed the woman before killing himself.

A friend of Fernandez notified police that she had not heard from her in a few days.

An investigation continues.
