July 24, 1998|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

The FBI has released an updated photograph of a man being sought in the stabbing death of a 91-year-old woman who was slain June 30 inside her Baltimore home in the Brooklyn neighborhood.

Christopher Mills, 25, who lived a block from the woman in the 3500 block of Sixth St., is shown with close-cropped hair and a goatee.

Police are offering a $2,000 reward for information leading to his arrest and conviction.

"It's an egregious crime," said Special Agent Peter A. Gulotta Jr., a spokesman for Baltimore's FBI office. "This guy is dangerous. We have no reason to believe that he has left the area. We are concentrating our efforts here."

Mills is charged in a warrant with first-degree murder in the death of Leona G. Klimm of the 3500 block of Fourth St.

Mills' roommate, Carlos Ray Halcomb, 25, has been arrested and also charged in her slaying. Police said the motive was robbery.

Mills was last seen two weeks ago in the Butchers Hill neighborhood in Southeast Baltimore, police said.

Anyone with information is urged to call the FBI at 410-265-8080 or the Baltimore Police Department's homicide unit at 410-396-2100.
