Groom sought after bride found dead

The groom is being sought in the stabbing death of his young bride hours after their marriage – his new wife’s body found in a bathtub in the silver sequin cocktail dress she wore at her wedding reception and possibly at the wedding itself, US police said.

The manhunt continued for 30-year-old Arnoldo Jimenez, who is wanted on a first-degree murder warrant after the death of Estrella Carrera, 26, shortly after they celebrated their marriage with friends, said police in the Chicago suburb of Burbank.

“It was a very brutal killing,” Captain Joseph Ford of the Burbank Police Department said. “We do our jobs every day, of course. But something like this really motivates you to work even harder.”

It is possible that Ms Carrera was also married in the short, shimmering dress in which she was killed, Capt Ford said.

After they were married at Chicago’s City Hall, the couple had dinner with friends at a restaurant, then headed to a nightclub in a party limousine.

They were last seen at 4am on Saturday, and Ms Carrera’s body was found in her Burbank apartment on Sunday.

Ms Carrera, a mother of two small children, told nearly no one about her plans to get married, inviting a few friends out without telling them what she was celebrating, her relatives said.

Her body was found after family members became worried they had not heard from her and called police.
