BEGGS, Okla. (AP) – The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information about the shooting death of a woman in Okmulgee County.

Investigators say 62-year-old Rebecca "Becky" Hamilton was shot to death inside her home in Beggs on Oct. 17. She had spent the day with her family at her granddaughter’s softball tournament. Authorities say Hamilton was fatally shot by an apparent intruder when she returned home.

Okmulgee County Sheriff Eddy Rice said at the time Hamilton was pronounced dead at the scene. Rice says she apparently was shot during a confrontation with the intruder.

The $5,000 reward is being offered through the Oklahoma Reward System for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of a suspect in the case.
