ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - The man suspected of shooting and killing his former lover this week remains at large, but prosecutors have charged him with second-degree murder and issued a national warrant for his arrest.

The Ramsey County Attorney’s Office said Friday that anyone harboring 44-year-old Lyle “Ty” Hoffman could be charged with a felony.

Hoffman is accused of killing 48-year-old Kelly Phillips, a Boston Scientific executive. They drove to an Arden Hills gas station Monday, and Phillips was shot in the head and back as he tried to run from the gunman.

A judge has sealed Hoffman’s criminal complaint until he’s arrested, to avoid releasing information that could hamper the investigation.

Ramsey County Undersheriff Joe Paget tells the Minneapolis Star Tribune (http://strib.mn/1vSuNkS ) there’s no evidence that Hoffman is dead or outside the country.
