An arrest warrant has been issued for a 29-year-old man suspected of stabbing his wife to death, San Bernardino police said Thursday.

Edly Atherley is wanted in connection with the slaying of his wife, Ashley Atherley, whose body was found Sunday at her home in the 2000 block of West College Avenue, according to the San Bernardino Police Department.

The 28-year-old victim was found dead inside a bathroom. She had been stabbed, police said.
