The woman arrested Thursday in connection with the death of her live-in boyfriend Wednesday had been arrested at least twice before in domestic incidents involving the same man, records obtained Friday by the Las Vegas Review-Journal show.

One of those arrests came in February, and records show the woman, Lah’tijera Howard, 26, admitted at the time to stabbing her boyfriend, Darryl White, 34. Howard was still undergoing domestic violence counseling :rolleyes:as a condition of her sentence when White was killed this week.

Howard is currently being held without bail at the Clark County Detention Center and facing a murder with a deadly weapon charge. Records show White had been in a relationship with Howard for about three years, and they had a young son together. It’s unclear who now has custody of the child, named Carter.


White was found dead about 2:20 p.m. Wednesday in a landscaped area of the main entryway to Playa Vista Apartments at 3700 E. Bonanza Road, near Pecos Road. Homicide detectives said his injuries were suspicious in nature and that they later found a car that had obvious signs of damage and that belonged to the couple in the complex.
