U.S. Marshals are searching for a second suspect accused in the weekend shooting death of a 66-year-old woman as she answered the door of her Youngstown home.

A warrant has been issued for the arrest of 51-year-old Jesse Williams. 

According to Marshals, Williams is suspected in the shooting of 66-year-old Diane Dent. 

Williams, who according to court records is charged with aggravated murder, is reportedly considered armed and dangerous. 

Police have already charged the girlfriend of Dent's son.

Rebecca Perez, 46, turned herself in at Youngstown Police headquarters Wednesday night on a charge of complicity to commit murder.

Austintown police records show that the victim's son, 45-year-old Anttwon Dent, went to the New Road home of Perez just ten hours before the shooting death of his mother.

According to the report, Dent had been knocking on the doors and windows of Perez's home just after 2 a.m. Sunday.

Dent got a phone call from Perez while he was speaking with an officer.  The report says the officer spoke with Perez who said she didn't want Dent at her home.

About an hour after police told Dent to stay away from the home, police returned to find that Dent had allegedly been involved in a fight with another male, only identified as “Jesse”, who ran away from the scene.

Dent, who was cut and bitten during the fight, was charged with criminal trespassing.

Anyone with information about the whereabouts on this suspect can contact the U. S. Marshals Tipline by calling 1-866-4WANTED, or by texting keyword “WANTED” and tip to TIP411 (847411)
