CHICAGO (AP) — Police are searching for the newlywed husband of a woman whose body was found stabbed and clothed in the silver sequin cocktail dress she wore at her wedding reception.

Police in the Chicago suburb of Burbank said Tuesday that they're searching for 30-year-old Arnoldo Jimenez on a first-degree murder warrant.

Jimenez and 26-year-old Estrella Carrera were married Friday at Chicago's city hall. They had dinner with friends at a restaurant, then took a limo to a nightclub. They were last seen around 4 a.m. Saturday.

Her body was found Sunday afternoon in the bathtub of her apartment in Burbank.

An autopsy Monday determined she died of multiple stab wounds. The Cook County medical examiner's office ruled the death a homicide. Carrera left behind two children, ages 8 and 2.
