— The Robeson County Sheriff's Office is searching for a man accused of murdering his wife.

A warrant has been issued for first-degree murder for Randy Locklear, of 599 Isiah Road in Maxton. He is 53 years old, 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighs 160 pounds.

Investigators said Locklear was last seen driving a burgundy 2001 Oldsmobile Bravada sport utility vehicle with 30-day tags on it. Anyone with information about his whereabouts or the death of his wife is urged to call the Robeson County Sheriff's Office at

Locklear is wanted for the murder of 38-year-old Katrina Ann Locklear, who apparently died of a shotgun wound to the head. She was found in her bed around 6:30 Friday morning by her 18-year-old son, and her body was sent to the Medical Examiner's office in Chapel Hill for an autopsy.
