Oklahoma man wanted in stabbing death of former Blackwell officer tracked to Wichita, Kan. area

BLACKWELL, Okla. (AP) -- The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation says a man wanted in connection with the stabbing death of a former Blackwell police officer is now believed to be in Kansas.

The OSBI says 29-year-old Luis Octavio Frias is believed to have been in the Wichita, Kan., area on Aug. 8 and Aug. 9 visiting relatives and friends. The agency said Monday that agents believe Frias may still be in the Wichita area.

Kay County prosecutors have filed a first-degree murder charge against Frias in the stabbing death of 29-year-old former officer Janett Reyna. The OSBI says Reyna was found stabbed to death in her apartment in Blackwell on Aug. 8.

The couple's three children were inside the apartment at the time and have been placed in protective custody.
