CHICAGO (CBS) — An expensive sports car–tied to the murder of a newly married woman last spring–has been found.

Burbank police say a black Maserati was discovered during the drug arrest of Humberto Jimenez last week.

His brother–30-year-old Arnoldo–is being sought in the death of his wife Estrella Carrera in May.

She was found dead from stab wounds in the bathtub of her Burbank home.

Carrera was found wearing a silver cocktail dress worn at her wedding reception.

Authorities immediately focused on the woman’s new husband.

Arnoldo Jimenez disappeared, along with the 2006 black Maserati he was driving. Jimenez has been named in a first degree murder warrant.

Investigators believe Carrera was stabbed in the car and moved to the bathtub. Humberto Jimenez, they say, then drove Arnoldo in the car to Mexico.

During the drug arrest, the Maserati was found in Humberto’s garage.

Prosecutors told the judge that blood was inside the car.
