According to the Heber City Police Department, a suspect in a homicide in Heber City Thursday who is on the loose may be driving a white 2005 Chevrolet pickup truck with license plate T287M.

The homicide under investigation was discovered in Heber Thursday morning around 10 a.m.

According to police, Asman is the boyfriend of a Heber City woman who was found dead. When the woman didn’t show up for work Thursday morning, her co-worker drove to her house and found her on the floor.

Police didn't provide any further details about her death.

Court records show Asman was arrested in Wasatch County last month on June 12. He was charged with five counts of domestic violence, including 3rd-degree felony aggravated assault and domestic violence in the presence of a child.

Anyone who may have seen Asman or the white Chevrolet is asked to call the Wasatch County Sheriff’s Office at 435-654-1411.
