A man is dead and his girlfriend is facing a second-degree murder charge following a night of drinking at a Las Vegas residence, according to police.

Las Vegas Police were called to a home in the 2400 block of Jessie Lee Lane Thursday night by Jennifer Lynn Doane, 50, who told police she’d shot and killed her boyfriend who’d punched her earlier in the evening.

LVPD Deputy Chief of Police Martin Gallegos identified the man killed as 42-year-old Nickolas J. Wells of Las Vegas.
