Connecticut officials have announced a $50,000 reward for information to help solve the killing of an Air Force veteran.

Governor Ned Lamont approved the maximum reward allowed by state law in the case of Dominic Marino.

The 30-year-old veteran was found shot to death with his wrists and ankles bound with tape in his East Hartford home in 2018. Police say the suspect or suspects appeared to have forced their way into the home. Marino’s father said his son served in Guam, South Korea and Kuwait.
