A Las Vegas woman who was apparently killed by her boyfriend before the man committed suicide Tuesday morning was identified today as 19-year-old Ferehiwot Ekubai.
Metro Police responded to an apartment complex in the 5700 block of West Tropicana Avenue, where they found Okbai dead from multiple stab wounds.
About an hour later at 1 a.m., police said the woman’s boyfriend, Michael Gebreneguse, 31, parked his cab along U.S. 95 near College Drive in Henderson and jumped in front of a vehicle on the highway, police said. He died at the hospital.
Investigators are calling the incident an apparent murder-suicide. Police said Okbai and Gebreneguse were dating and had been living together for a year-and-a-half.
