Reward for Alleged Killer

A $5,000 reward is being offered for a Pittsburgh-area man who disappeared after allegedly shooting and killing a woman a year ago.

43-year-old James Garland Watts of Clairton hasn't been seen since the fatal shooting of 40-year-old Shawnta Lee, and the wounding her husband, 53-year-old David Lee on March 24, 2008.

David Lee is offering $4,000 for information leading to Watts' arrest on top of a $1,000 reward by Pennsylvania Crime Stoppers.

The case was featured on Fox TV's "America's Most Wanted" last year.

Police say Watts shot the couple while trying to rob them of money to pay a cocaine binge.
