The man wanted in a bloody crime spree that spanned across northeast Harris County continues to elude law enforcement.

Russell Cormier, 53, is charged with killing his ex-wife Fannie McWhite. He is also suspected of killing Thornton Jack Bivens, and then shooting his neighbor Roshal Barley.

Cormier was last seen at 4:30 a.m. Tuesday, moments after allegedly shooting his neighbor, then driving off in a Dodge Stratus.

New charging documents revealed that on Monday, a neighbor heard Cormier threaten McWhite.

"I'm going to shoot your son," the document read.

According to the documents, she replied "no, no," to which he asked, "Well, how do you like this?"

Moments later, she was shot.
