RICHMOND, Va. -- Shatema Smith, the 37-year-old missing woman wanted for questioning in a Richmond murder, was located in Raleigh, North Carolina, according to Richmond Police.

He had been shot multiple times, according to Crime Insider sources.

Police also found Matthews' car, which was missing following the Richmond man's death.

Smith is currently being held at the Wake County Sheriff's Office.
