A man and woman are wanted for the murder of farm worker who was found dead at a mobile home in the Airlie Road area of Littleton Saturday morning.

Halifax County Sheriff Wes Tripp this morning declined to say how Nestor Salazar Moctexuma, 51, a year-round farm worker in the county, died.

He did say in a statement the motive was robbery and investigators are looking for Sheena Kay Riley, 29, and Jovonte Jacqus Boone, 25.
Tripp declined to elaborate on the relationship between Riley and Boone. He did say they were familiar with the victim and frequent the Roanoke Rapids area.
Tripp said in the statement at approximately 11 a.m. Saturday, deputies responded to a call of a death at a mobile home.
Upon investigation and following up on leads, deputies developed Riley and Boone as persons of interest.
Further investigation led to evidence being found and deputies obtained warrants for murder on them.
Anyone with information is encouraged to call Crimestoppers at 252-583-4444.
