The Laurel County Sheriff's Office is searching for a man wanted for murder.

Police have issued an arrest warrant for 34-year-old Eric Cassidy. He's facing charges of operating a motor vehicle under the influence, murder, and being a persistent felony offender.

Police say on Nov. 30 last year, Cassidy crossed the center line while driving and hit another vehicle, which overturned over an embankment. The driver, 47-year-old Sherry King, died at the scene.

Police say they've made multiple attempts to locate Cassidy, but haven't been able to find him. They say they believe he's attempting to evade arrest.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Laurel County Sheriff's Office at (606) 878-7000.
