RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCT) Gov. Roy Cooper has announced a reward for information in the murder of a child and the shooting of her mother back in July.

Cooper said in a press release on Friday the state is offering up to $10,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those involved in the death of Makiia Slade, 9, and the shooting of her mother, Shatory Hunter Slade, 30.
