A militant convicted of killing a New Jersey state trooper 40 years ago is now the first woman on the FBI's list of most wanted terrorists.

The FBI and state of New Jersey also announced Thursday a doubling of the reward, to $2 million, for the capture of Joanne Chesimard.

The state is adding its own $1 million on top of the million dollars already offered by the FBI for her capture and return.

Chesimard was a member of the Black Liberation Army. She's been on the run since 1979 when she escaped from prison, where she was serving a life term in the death of Trooper Werner Foerster.

She fled to Cuba, where she has lived under the name Assata Shakur.

Foerster was killed on May 2, 1973, during a traffic stop.
