NEWARK -

A man suspected of killing his fiancée in her home has been added to the FBI's 10 Most Wanted list.

Lamont Stephenson is wanted for the 2014 strangulation of Olga DeJesus.

The 43-year-old Newark resident hasn't been seen in New Jersey since the killing but is known to have contacts in Virginia and the Carolinas.

"The last confirmed location for Lamont Stephenson was Newark Penn Station in Newark, New Jersey,” Greg Ehrie, Special Agent in Charge of the Newark FBI office, says. “Stephenson's family, friends and work colleagues have been interview multiple times over the past few years. All report they have not seen or heard from Stephenson since the date of the murder."

Stephenson is considered armed and dangerous.

The bureau is offering a $100,000 reward for information leading directly to Stephenson's arrest.

Stephenson replaces Antwan Mims on the most-wanted list. Mims was arrested in July and charged with two murders in Michigan.
