Reyna had filed a protective order against Frias two days before she died.

Frias, who was profiled in the premiere episode of In Pursuit with John Walsh on January 16 on the Investigation Discovery channel. Frias from Blackwell, Okla. has been on John Walsh’s personal most wanted list since 2013 after allegedly stabbing his ex-wife, Reyna, to death in front of their children. U.S. Marshals used the same handcuffs issued to the victim when she was a police officer with the Blackwell Police Department.
