Man Charged in Wife's Murder in Elko

Posted: Updated:

A man has been charged with murder in the strangulation of his wife in Elko.

The Elko Daily Free Press reports the charges were filed Wednesday against Eduardo Estrada, a purported gang member.

His wife, Stephanie Estrada, was reported missing June 25 by her family. She was to start work at Scoreboard Sports Bar & Casino in Spring Creek the next day, but she never showed up.

Police are searching for Eduardo Estrada in the Tucson, Ariz., area because his brother told police he picked up the suspect at the airport the night of June 25.

According to police, Eduardo Estrada had taken the couple's three young children to Arizona to spend time with him earlier in the month. He returned to Elko with them on June 24.
