Police Arrest Suspect in Woman's Killing
Christopher Salguero

LAS VEGAS - Police have arrested a man suspected of stabbing his girlfriend to death on July 25.

Clark County Detention Center records show 23-year-old Christopher Salguero was arrested Thursday.

Amber Pierson, 25, was found dead in her home near Sacramento Drive and Charleston Boulevard.

According to the arrest report, a neighbor directed police to Salguero's house where police found a pair of bloody shoes and shorts.

Salguero's father told officers he had warned police -- in the past -- something like this might happen. He also told police his son claimed he heard voices telling him that she (Pierson) was a witch, the report said.

Salguero was booked on a first degree murder charge.
