FRANKLIN COUNTY, Tenn. -

The U.S. Marshals Service announced on Thursday they are doubling the reward for information leading to the arrest of a man wanted for murder.

David Jenkins is wanted by authorities for his involvement in the death of 26-year-old Corey Matthews in late March.

Investigators say Jenkins and three other men, who are in police custody, beat Matthews to death because of his affiliation with the Aryan Nation.

The reward for information leading to Jenkins' arrest now stands at $5,000.

Authorities say the 46-year-old man is considered armed and dangerous.
