OKLAHOMA CITY -

The U.S. Marshals Service is now offering a $2,500 reward for new information in an Oklahoma City rape and murder case.

Police have been searching for 30-year-old Christopher Whitfield, also known as Christopher Singer. He is accused of killing an unborn child and threatening to shoot an 8-year-old.

Police say he's also accused of holding two young children hostage, while he raped and abused their mother in his home on 1135 N.E. 20th.

According to court documents filed on June 17, Whitfield forced the ex-girlfriend and her two children, ages eight and three, into his home and held them hostage for three days.

The arrest warrant states Whitfield "placed a large older television in front of the door so the children could not leave."

It states Whitfield also pulled a pistol on the 8-year-old little boy and put the pistol to the boy's head. He told the child that if he tried to escape, he would kill him.

Whitfield reportedly forced the boy's mother into a back bedroom where he beat and raped her repeatedly using his fists, shoes and a belt. The mother was able to escape at one point, but she only ran about half a block before she was recaptured and dragged back into the house.

Court documents revealed, the young woman was beaten so badly she was almost unrecognizable to her family. She was able to escape the night of June 13 after Whitfield left the home in her Grey Chevy Impala.

If you have any new information regarding this case, you have been asked to call 405-456-9075.
