(Newser) – Police near Chicago have issued an arrest warrant for a bridegroom whose new wife was found stabbed to death in a bathtub shortly after their Friday wedding, reports the Chicago Tribune. Arnoldo Jimenez, 30, hasn't been seen since the family of Estrella Carrera found her body in the tub on Sunday, still clothed in the sequined cocktail dress she'd worn on her wedding night. Jimenez is charged with first-degree murder. A sister of Carrera tells AP that Jimenez phoned his own sister and told her that he left his wife bleeding after a "bad fight." Jimenez's sister reportedly told Carerra's family of the call.
