This is an undated file photo provided by the New Jersey State Police showing Assata Shakur — the former Joanne Chesimard. Shakur, 57, was convicted in 1973 of killing New Jersey State Trooper Werner Foerster as he lay on the ground. She escaped from prison in 1979 and fled to Cuba. The FBI announced last Thursday that the reward for the capture and return of Chesimard doubled to $2 million. The FBI also announced it has made Chesimard, now living in Cuba as Assata Shakur, the first woman on its list of most wanted terrorists.
