Woman tells police she killed boyfriend in Las Vegas

CREATED Dec. 28, 2011

 LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Police in Las Vegas say a 29-year-old woman admitted stabbing her boyfriend during a fatal argument about him staying out late.

A police report made public Wednesday identifies the dead man as Johnny Dewayne Sheffield and says he died at Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center. He was found about 7:30 a.m. Tuesday in a nearby apartment with a single stab wound to the chest.

Police say Chamel Monique Smith told investigators that Sheffield kicked in their apartment door and she stabbed Sheffield during a physical argument about him staying out late just days after Smith suffered a miscarriage of their baby.

Smith is being held at the Clark County jail pending an initial court appearance on a felony murder charge.
