SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- There's a federal warrant out for a convicted killer from Utah who is accused of violating parole.

Authorities believe James Tolbert could be in California or Nevada. He's wanted on a parole violation, but authorities also want to question him in the recent death of a 68-year-old woman.

Ann Poulson of Murray befriended Tolbert while he was in prison. He was a frequent visitor to her home after his release in 2006.

Tolbert was convicted of killing his wife in 1987.

The new federal charge says he fled Utah to avoid prosecution on a parole violation. It was filed last week.
