SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Murray police and state parole officers continue to look for the ex-convict they want to question about a 68-year-old woman's death.

Ann Poulson was found dead in her home Oct. 9. Family members say she had befriended James William Tolbert while working in a church volunteer program at the state prison. She lent him money and fed him occasional meals after his release.

The 41-year-old Tolbert was in prison for strangling and killing his wife in 1987. He was released in 2006.

Police have been unable to locate him since Poulson's death.

They also won't say how long Poulson had been dead when she was found, or exactly how she died. Her car was found abandoned in a Salt Lake City park.

A part-time accountant for the Deseret Morning News, Poulson had recently told friends she last saw Tolbert about three weeks ago.
