Authorities in northwest Arizona announced a nationwide hunt for a woman accused for a role in a man's slaying in which the victim was stabbed 80 times.
Bullhead City resident Nora Yesenia Sandoval, 35, faces first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit first-degree murder charges in the 2011 death of Raymond Sanchez, according to police.
According to Bullhead City police, Sanchez was believed to have stolen a large amount of methamphetamine from Sandoval. Earlier this month, Chase Salveson, 42, was arrested and accused of killing Sanchez.
Citing a tip in Salveson's arrest, Bullhead City police believe Salveson also killed Sanchez in order to pay back a debt to Sandoval.
Sanchez's body was found stabbed more than 80 times and wrapped in plastic shower curtains at the entrance of the Colorado River Nature Center, police said.
Police also linked Sandoval to Sanchez's death after they learned she purchased plastic shower curtains and cleaning supplies on the same day of the slaying, according to authorities.
Sandoval fled last year when she was on trial for methamphetamine sales, which a jury convicted her.
Police urged anyone with information on Sandoval's whereabouts to contact local law enforcement or Bullhead City police at 928-763-1999.
