A $2,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest of a man wanted on homicide charges stemming from the 2012 robbery of a Wilson woman.
Quadir Shahidd Taylor, 28, is charged with homicide, robbery and other offenses in a warrant filed this month after a grand jury investigation.
On Tuesday, the Lehigh Valley Crime Stoppers announced they are offering the reward for information leading to Taylor's arrest.
Two gunmen awoke Carrie Smith, 76, in the middle of the night Jan. 15, 2012, and threatened to shoot her as she struggled to open a safe for them inside her Hillside Avenue home, according to trial testimony. Smith suffered from a number of health ailments, but doctors ruled her death was due to complications as a result of the robbery.
Rebecca L. Johnson, Smith's granddaughter, and Johnson's ex-boyfriend, Rogel I. Suero, 33, were convicted of murder and other charges by a jury in October 2013. They were sentenced to life in prison without parole.
Johnson's cousin, David Bechtold, 21, of Wilson pleaded guilty last year to conspiracy to commit robbery. He was the group's getaway driver. He received a sentence of one to two years in jail and five years of probation and has been released from prison.
Bechtold testified against Johnson and Suero at her trial, but couldn't identify Taylor other than by the street name, "Avon."
However, Johnson testified before a grand jury in June and identified Taylor as "Avon," and admitted meeting Suero and Taylor at a barbershop where, she said, they split up more than $42,000 in loot.
