DPS is upping the reward for information on two of the state's most wanted fugitives. Provide information leading to the arrest of Gwen Komahcheet of Spring, Texas, and collect $12,500. This is one dangerous dude, though.
The 60-year-old is wanted for aggravated rape with a deadly weapon. His criminal history in Texas, Oklahoma and California includes rape with a deadly weapon, assault with a deadly weapon, robbery, vehicle theft, drunk driving and on and on.
After being convicted in 1979 in Dallas for sexual assault with a deadly weapon, he got a 75-year prison sentence. But he got paroled in 2004, then disappeared. He's considered armed and dangerous.
The other fugitive is Mark Steven Bauman, 50, of Austin. He's wanted for possession of child pornography, improper photography, failure to comply with sex offender registration requirements and more. DPS notes that he speaks Spanish fluently.
