Area of homicide

Metro Police have arrested a man suspected of killing his wife this morning at their home in Nellis Air Force Base.

Rickey Massey Jr., 32, was arrested shortly after military guards discovered his wife’s body about 10:30 a.m. inside the couple’s garage in the 4400 block of Kevil Circle.

She appeared to have been killed by blunt force trauma, Metro Officer Bill Cassell said. Massey was in the home when the guards arrived.

Cassell said Massey “had been involved in a domestic dispute hours before the discovery of (his wife’s) body,” but no other details were provided.

Massey was arrested on an open murder charge and booked into the Clark County Detention Center.

The incident is Metro’s fourth homicide investigation this year.
