Kingman, AZ: Nevada Man Accused in Stabbing Death in Arizona

KINGMAN, Ariz. (AP) — Authorities say a Nevada man is facing extradition from Arizona in the stabbing death of a woman found in a burning car near Kingman.

They say 42-year-old John David Marshall, of Henderson, is being held in the Mohave County Jail without bail awaiting an extradition hearing.

Authorities say he's facing murder and kidnapping charges.

A friend of the woman called 911 at about 11 a.m. Tuesday to say Marshall claimed to have killed his ex-girlfriend and was driving somewhere to kill himself.

The car was found on fire near Golden Valley, west of Kingman, and the victim was found inside the burning vehicle.

Mohave County Sheriff deputies captured Marshall after he ran from the burning car.

Henderson police say the woman's name is being withheld until her family is notified.
