POLICE are hunting for a 27-year-old man wanted in connection with the murder of Widnes dad-of-three, Wayne Basnett.

Detectives from Cheshire Police want to speak to Christie O’Connor about the shooting of 30-year-old Mr Basnett, from Hough Green.

A £30,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of O’Connor.

A Cheshire Police spokesman said: “O’Connor has links to Liverpool, Spain, Holland and other European countries.”

A TV appeal was broadcast on BBC Crimewatch last night, asking the public for help in finding him.

O'Connor is 6ft tall, of proportionate build, blue eyes, and speaks with a Liverpool accent.

Co-accused Michael Eves, aged 24, of Edenhall Drive, Halewood,  has been charged with murder and is awaiting trial in Jan 2013.

Anyone with information can call Cheshire Polcie on 101, quoting Operation Tee.
