The Clark County coroner’s office has identified the man fatally stabbed Friday during a home invasion in Summerlin.
He was 48-year-old Vergel Guintu of Las Vegas, the coroner’s office said. He died of stab wounds to the neck, and his death was ruled a homicide.
Police received a 911 call around 9:50 a.m. from a woman who said someone broke into their home, on the 10000 block of Kenton Place, and stabbed her husband. When officers arrived, they found Guintu inside with a stab wound. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police said Guintu was stabbed when he confronted the intruder, who was a juvenile. The boy was arrested on Saturday and booked on a murder charge, but police have not released his name.
