MOHAVE VALLEY, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities in northwestern Arizona have arrested a 28-year-old man in the shooting death of his girlfriend.

Mohave County sheriff's officials say deputies arrested James Paul Manker on Tuesday in the killing of 56-year--old Tina Marie Stimmell at their Mohave Valley home.

According to the Sheriff's Office, deputies went to the home after Manker called the office and told a dispatcher that he had shot his girlfriend.

Court records don't list a defense attorney for Manker who could comment on the allegations.
