Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- We now know the name of the man killed at the Loose Caboose last week.

He is 41-year-old Phillip Mathews of Las Vegas.The coroner said he died from hitting his head during an assault.

Last week, a judge set a $75,000 bail for Luis Chavarin. He's been charged in Mathew's death.

Police said the two got in a fight  over the music on the jukebox.

Investigators said Chavarin punched Mathews, causing him to fall and hit his head which led to his death.
