FBI Adding Assata Shakur to Most Wanted Terrorist List

Convicted for killing a cop in 1973, when she was known as Joanne Chesimard

Joanne Chesimard, now living in Cuba as a fugitive after murdering a New Jersey state trooper, will be placed on the FBI's Most Wanted Terrorist list —  with the reward for her capture doubled —  on Thursday, exactly 40 years after the death of Trooper Werner Foerster.

Some of New Jersey's top lawmen will gather at the FBI's headquarters in Newark to announce that Chesimard is being added to the FBI terrorist list, a law enforcement official said.
