A day after an illegal immigrant was charged with the murder of an Albion woman at a Walmart, police are still trying to piece together exactly what happened.

24-year-old Luis Rodriguez-Flamenco of Honduras allegedly stabbed and killed 45-year-old Kathleen Byham in the parking lot of the WalMart Super Center on Route 31.

Police now say they believe the suspect was trying to steal Byham's car. The victim was stabbed at least seven times, and investigators are still looking for the murder weapon, which they believe is in a field across from the store. 

This marks the second homicide this year in Albion charged to an illegal immigrant
