NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — The reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of a man suspected of killing his wife’s best friend in New Haven has grown to $30,000.

Police on Friday announced that the state is offering $25,000 for information that leads to 42 year-old Tramaine Marquese Poole. The U.S. Marshals’ Violent Fugitive Task Force had previously offered a reward of up to $5,000 in the case.

Poole has been on the lam since May 7 when he shot his wife. She survived.

But police say on May 31 Poole shot and killed his wife’s best friend, 28-year-old Tyekqua Nesbitt, in a car in front of her 11-year-old and 6-year-old children.

Poole is considered armed and dangerous.
