Man involved in stabbing death of wife at apartment complex identified

CREATED Jan. 10, 2014

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Las Vegas police are investigating a woman's stabbing death at a local apartment complex. They have described this as a domestic issue.  

Police say 40-year-old Richard Magdayo Dahan walked into the northwest area command for the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department at approximately 3 p.m. on Friday, and said a crime may have been committed in a local residential area.

Dahan went on to tell police "he stabbed his wife" and "thought she might be dead." 

He had minor, non-life threatening injuries but was not transported to the hospital.

Because Dahan walked into the command's lobby, the area became part of the crime scene and was temporarily closed.

Officers then responded to the Camden Vintage Apartments near Vegas Drive and Torrey Pines.

They found Dahan's wife suffering from multiple stab wounds. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

There was no one else in the home when the incident happened.

Dahan was taken into custody at the Clark County Detention Center.
