KINGMAN – Payane Harris Berg, 25 of Golden Valley, and 25-year-old Kingmanite Skyler Lee Whalen were arrested by Mohave County Sheriff’s Office deputies Saturday after law enforcement received a call from a reporting party who said they could hear someone “screaming bloody murder.”

Payane Harris Berg and Skyler Lee Whalen were arrested for aggravated assault and 2nd degree burglary, and booked into Mohave County jail.
