CHESTERFIELD, Va. (AP) — Police in Virginia who are searching for a man in connection with a shooting that left his estranged wife injured now say he is also wanted on a murder warrant after the separate discovery of human remains.
Chesterfield County Police said in a statement Saturday that they have obtained a murder warrant for 44-year-old Joshua M. Federico.
