WASHINGTON, D.C. (WHEC) — One of the two murder suspects who were arrested in Henrietta and then escaped is now on the U.S. Marshals "15 Most Wanted" list.

56-year-old Blane Barksdale and his 59-year-old wife Susan Barksdale are wanted for the murder of a 72-year-old man in Tucson, Arizona back in April. 


Police say the Barksdales are armed and dangerous. They have been on the run for more than two weeks. The couple was last seen about 200 miles north of Phoenix. 

U.S. Marshals also announced Monday that the reward for information leading to the arrest of Blane Barksdale has gone up to $25,000. Susan Barksdale's reward amount remains at $10,000. 

Deputies found the couple hiding out in Henrietta back in May.

Investigators say the husband and wife overpowered two security officers in Utah during transport two weeks ago.
