Groom Arnoldo Jimenez is now being sought in the stabbing death of his young bride just hours after their marriage. The body of his new wife Estrella Carrera was found in a bathtub in the silver sequin cocktail dress she wore at her wedding reception, police said Tuesday. Jimenez, 30, is wanted on a first-degree murder warrant in the slaying of Carrera, 26, who died soon after they celebrated their marriage with friends in the Chicago suburb of Burbank, said police. After they were married Friday afternoon at Chicago's City Hall, the couple had dinner with friends at a restaurant, then headed to a nightclub in a party limousine. They were last seen at 4 a.m. Saturday and Carrera's body was found in her Burbank apartment Sunday.
