CHICAGO (AP) — Police are urging a newlywed suburban Chicago man wanted in the stabbing death of his wife to turn himself in as 32 law enforcement agencies and the FBI hunt for him.

Thirty-year-old Arnoldo Jimenez is accused of first-degree murder in the slaying of 26-year-old Estrella Carrera. She was found in her bathtub shortly after they celebrated their wedding Friday with friends.

Carrera was clad in the silver sequin cocktail dress that she wore at the wedding reception.

Capt. Joseph Ford of the Burbank Police Department says Jimenez was previously arrested for domestic violence in another city that did not involve Carrera.

Ford says police don't think Jimenez is a danger to others.

He says Jimenez should "turn himself in for the sake of his family and especially his children."
