HOUSTON — Authorities have increased to $75,000 the reward for information to a Texas murder.

Officials are seeking information leading to an arrest in the slaying last year of a family of four, including two children, in their suburban Houston home.

Harris County Sheriff Adrian Garcia on Monday announced the reward has been increased from the $70,000 officials announced last summer.

Crime Stoppers is offering the reward for information on the deaths of 50-year-old Maoye Sun, his 49-year-old wife Mei Xie and their 7- and 9-year-old sons.

Authorities have said a motive in the killings remains unclear.

Deputies discovered the bodies Jan. 30, 2014.

Investigators say the husband was last seen alive leaving work on Jan. 24.
