LAS VEGAS (KSNV -- A Henderson man and a Las Vegas woman have been identified as the people who died in an apparent murder-suicide.

A Clark County coroner's office staffer said Saturday the man was 29-year-old Luis Montiel of Henderson while the woman was 18-year-old Vanniesa Caroline Fernandez of Las Vegas.

During a preliminary investigation on Friday, Metro Lt. Ray Steiber said it appeared that the woman was the victim in a murder-suicide.

The two bodies were found Friday about 3 p.m. at the Mark I Apartments at 1020 E. Desert Inn Road. Metro was alerted by the woman's friend who said she had not heard from her for a few days, Metro said.
