Jimenez was reportedly crying and nervous, hung up on his sister and wouldn't pick up when she called him back.

Police are now searching for Jimenez, who is wanted on a murder charge.

Estrella Carrera, 26, was found stabbed in her bathtub, wearing a sequined cocktail dress she'd worn on her wedding night.

Jazmin Carrera says Jimenez had hit and bruised her sister in the past.

Anyone with information on Jimenez' whereabouts should call Burbank police at 708-924-7300.
