(WIBW) - The suspect in a Greenwood County double murder is now on the state's Most Wanted list.

The Kansas Bureau of Investigation added 35-year old Kevin Welsh Wednesday.

The reward for information leading to his arrest also has grown. In addition to a $5,000 Governor's Reward, an anonymous business is offering another $5,000 and Greenwood County Crime Stoppers chipped in another $1,000, bringing the total to $11,000.

Welsh is wanted for an October 2nd shooting in Eureka. A 26-year-old woman, identified as his ex-girlfriend, was seriously injured. Her mother and stepfather, 54-year-old Keith Kalen Kriesel and his wife, 52-year-old Sheila Kriesel, were killed.

Anyone with information on Welsh's whereabouts should contact 1-800-KS-CRIME. Authorities believe Welsh is armed.
