Report: Woman accused of killing roommates wanted to go to court to evict them

The suspect in a triple shooting spoke with the homeowner about evicting some of the roommates weeks before the deadly incident, according to an arrest report released Wednesday.

Christine Sanchez, 47, is being charged with shooting and killing three of her roommates. The shooting happened Friday near Tropicana Avenue and Mountain Vista Street.

The victims have been identified as a man who goes by the name of "Rico," Cardell Jones and Natasha Henry.

According to an arrest report, after the shootings, Sanchez asked the only surviving roommate, John Nunn, who was also the homeowner, if he could watch her dog because she was going to go to jail. She also used the time before leaving the house to make phone calls, one of which was to her son.

The arrest report said, both Nunn and Sanchez said the victims were disrespectful to them, their property, and the home. Sanchez had planned to go to court the morning of Dec. 22 to get the roommates evicted, but she didn't have a ride, so she missed court. That same morning, the morning of the shooting, Nunn heard Rico and Sanchez arguing, the report said.

The arrest report also said Rico was trying to break into Sanchez's room when gunshots and yelling were heard. Shots were also heard in another room in the house.

When Nunn came in contact with Sanchez, the 47-year-old woman was holding a gun as she told him that the roommates tried to break into her room. The report said that's when Sanchez asked Nunn to watch her dog when she went to jail, and he agreed.

Sanchez then left the home. She was found and arrested a short time later by police.

She was booked into the Clark County Detention Center on three counts of open murder with a deadly weapon.
