DALHART, Texas (AP) - A Dalhart man suspected of fatally shooting his wife in front of their two grandchildren remained at large as police investigate whether he fled to Mexico.

Dalhart Police Chief Tom Sanford on Friday told The Associated Press that the search continues for 78-year-old Jose Abel Cancino.

Sanford says 63-year-old Elva Perez Cancino was fatally shot Wednesday night outside the couple's home after asking her spouse to move out.

Sanford says police are "talking with family members to see where he might be hiding out, and the possibility of him heading to old Mexico." Police say the fugitive has family in the Del Rio and Midland area, as well as Mexico.

Dalhart is a Texas Panhandle town of about 7,300 residents, near the Oklahoma and New Mexico borders.
