DENISON, Texas — A murder warrant has been issued for a man after the slaying of a North Texas woman.

The Grayson County Sheriff’s Office in Sherman on Friday announced the search for 53-year-old Arron Lynn Smith. Lt. Rickey Wheeler said Smith is considered armed and dangerous and should not be approached.

Wheeler said Smith is suspected in the killing Thursday night of a 46-year-old woman from Denison. Her name wasn’t immediately released. Wheeler said the attack happened just outside Denison, 70 miles north of Dallas.

Smith is described as being a balding white male, 5 feet 7 inches tall, about 180 pounds with blue eyes and brown hair.
