— Cumberland County authorities are searching for a 25-year-old man wanted in connection with the November stabbing death of a Spring Lake man.

Deputies secured first-degree murder warrants for German Torres-Galicia Wednesday. 

Investigators went to a home on Romie Street in Spring Lake on Nov. 10 and found Gabriel Cordoba Reyes, 35, dead on the living room floor. 

Authorities said Torres-Galicia fled the scene in Reyes' 2002 Nissan Frontier, which was later recovered.
