MILWAUKEE — The search is on for a Milwaukee man convicted Friday of murder.

Police say Dwayne Chaney was on trial for the November 2015 homicide of Michael Prescott when he left a Milwaukee courtroom, cut off his GPS bracelet, and vanished. Chaney had been released on bond during the trial despite having previously been on the run for more than a year. The GPS bracelet was found on the city’s north side.

Court records show that the 25-year-old Chaney was freed on a signature bond and given electronic monitoring because prosecutors were not prepared to try him within the 90-day speedy trial limit.

U.S. Marshals caught Chaney in May, 17 months after he fatally shot Prescott in a fit of jealously over his ex-girlfriend.

Chaney attended the first three days of trial, which began Oct. 16 in Milwaukee County Circuit Court. On Thursday, Chaney failed to show, but the trial went in without him even as a warrant was issued for his arrest.

On Friday, the jury convicted Chaney of first degree intentional homicide. Now, a nationwide manhunt is underway.

U.S. Marshals on Thursday released a photo of 23-year-old Zuri London, who they believe may be with Chaney.

Chaney is 5’8” and weighs about 200 pounds. He also goes by ‘Wayne.’

Milwaukee police say Chaney was seen on video getting into a 2012 white Toyota Scion xB with Wisconsin plates 970-YZT and VIN # JTLZE4FE7CJ009509.

Anyone with information about Chaney’s whereabouts is asked to call U.S. Marshals at 414-297-3703 or Milwaukee Police Department at 414-935-7360.
