Virginia State Police and the U.S. Marshals Service are looking for a man who they believe killed his wife.

Detectives discovered the body of 24-year-old Ashley Rodriguez late Monday in the Allegheny Memorial Park Cemetery, which is not too far outside Covington. She had been shot in the face.

Investigators are preparing to return to the cemetery to collect more evidence, and to look for the murder weapon.

Police are looking for her husband Rosendo "Manuel" Rodriguez, 33, who is facing a charge of first degree murder. Police recently release a photo of the vehicle Rosendo Rodriguez might be driving to get away. It is a green F-150 truck.

Ashley and Rosendo Rodriguez are the parents of four children. Ashley had been reported missing Monday night after she didn't show up for work.
