FREDERICKSBURG, Va.— Police are searching for a person of interest in the slayings of an elderly couple in Fauquier County.

Police tell media outlets that 60-year-old John Wesley Jeffries of Fredericksburg is believed to be armed and dangerous. Jeffries is also wanted in Spotsylvania County on malicious wounding and other charges stemming from an incident in Spotsylvania.

Jeffries is listed as a violent offender on the Virginia Sex Offender Registry.
