Arnoldo Jimenez, 37, of Illinois, wanted for allegedly murdering his new bride less than 24 hours after marrying her.

The FBI is offering a reward of up to $100,000 for information leading directly to the arrest of Jimenez, who is wanted by the FBI for Unlawful Flight to Avoid Prosecution.

Jimenez is sought for allegedly killing his wife on May 12, 2012, the day after their wedding. He allegedly stabbed his wife to death in his black, four-door, 2006 Maserati, then allegedly dragged her body into the bathroom tub of her apartment in Burbank, Ill.

He was charged with first-degree murder by the Circuit Court of Cook County, Ill., and a state warrant was issued for his arrest on May 15, 2012. A federal arrest warrant was issued by the U.S. District Court, Northern District of Illinois, Eastern Division, on May 17, 2012, after Jimenez was charged federally with unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.

A native of Texas, Jimenez is a white Hispanic male who has black hair and brown eyes. He is described as being 6 feet tall and weighing 200-225 pounds. Aliases he has used include Arnoldo Gimenez and Arnoldo Rochel Jimenez.

Jimenez may have fled to Durango, Mexico, specifically in the area of Santiago Papasquiaro. He may also frequent Reynosa, Tamaulipas, Mexico. He has previously resided in Chicago, Illinois.

FBI officials say he should be considered armed and dangerous.
