MAMMOTH, AZ (AP) -

The Pinal County Sheriff's Office is offering up to $2,000 for information leading to an arrest in the case of a double killing in Mammoth.

The Casa Grande Dispatch reports that the sheriff's office Victim Services and Silent Witness are donating the money for the reward in connection to the Jan. 31 shootings of 34-year-old Mark Reynoso and 28-year-old Maria Desantiago.

Reynoso and Desantiago were found dead in their home; each had been shot in the back of the head.

Reynoso was awaiting trial for manslaughter charges tied to a vehicle crash that killed three people on Jan. 30, 2015.

He and Desantiago were shot and killed one day after the second anniversary of that deadly crash.

Reynoso had been driving a pickup truck headed north on State Route 77 when he crossed into the southbound lane. A van switched from the southbound lane to the northbound lane to avoid Reynoso, but the pickup switched back to the northbound lane and the two vehicles collided.

Rodger Fugett, Francisco Calzadillas and Troy Brownrigg II were killed in the crash.
