REDDING — A Northern California man suspected of killing his wife and two daughters has been added to the U.S. Marshals Service's list of most-wanted fugitives.

The service announced Tuesday that it had put 45-year-old Shane Franklin Miller on its "15 Most Wanted" list. Shasta County authorities have been looking for Miller since his family was found shot to death at their Shingletown home in May.

His truck was found about 200 miles away in Humboldt County, but an extensive search turned up no other traces of him.

The slayings of Miller's 34-year-old wife, Sandra, and daughters Shelby and Shasta, ages 8 and 5, came two weeks after sheriff's deputies escorted the wife from the home following a domestic dispute.

A $25,000 reward is being offered for information leading to Miller's arrest.
