- James Mancuso, 32, is wanted on a warrant for second-degree murder.
The hunt for a Nampa homicide suspect has led law enforcement to the Idaho panhandle.
According to police, two men were reportedly in an argument around 5 p.m. March 10 in front of a garage on West Kinghorn Drive in Nampa. By the end of the evening, Robert Stevens, 30, was dead from a stab wound to the abdomen and authorities were on the lookout for James Mancuso, 32, and a female companion identified as 27-year-old Ashley Ford.
The Bonner County Daily Bee reports Mancuso and Ford were spotted by Idaho State Police during a March 23 traffic stop in the Ponderay-Kootenai area north of Sandpoint, but the suspects fled the scene.
Law enforcement officials told KREM-TV they now believe Mancuso is on foot in the Bonner County area. They're cautioning residents to stay indoors and call police if they see anyone or anything suspicious.
