— Wilson police hope a $5,000 cash reward will help lead them to a suspected killer.

Police are searching for 30-year old Ricky Bailey. They said Bailey stalked and murdered his estranged wife, Dena, on Sunday.

Friends of the victim said she had been trying to leave her husband for two years.

Police said Bailey was last known to be in the Mount Pleasant area of Nash County and was driving a 1997 green Ford Contour.

Authorities say Bailey is considered armed and dangerous. They think he has a pistol, and possibly, several rifles and shotguns.

Anyone with information is asked to call the

Investigators said you do not have to give your name to collect the reward.
