WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – Warren detectives and U.S. Marshals are actively looking for the suspect accused of killing a mother inside her home.

A warrant on a murder charge has been issued for 27-year-old Kemari James. Police say he is wanted in connection to a shooting inside a home on the 1600 block of Ogden Ave. NW.

According to the U.S. Marshals Service Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force, Workman was pregnant and the mother of two young children.
