The family of an elderly couple killed in their northeast Oklahoma home is now offering a reward as the case grows cold.

The reward for information into who killed William and Leota Huls on November 9, 2008 has expired, and the family is hoping someone will be encouraged to come forward now that a new reward is on the table.

Craig County Sheriff Jimmie Sooter said the couple was found shot to death in their rural home, located near Welch, by a neighbor who went to check on them when they didn't show up for church.

"There is no amount of money in this world that I wouldn't give to have my mom and dad back," the victims' daughter said.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation is also looking into reinstating the reward.

State law only allows for rewards 90 days at a time.
