A $10,000 reward is offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of a man who killed an elderly woman during a North Texas carjacking.

Dallas-based Oak Farms Dairy is offering the reward for clues leading to solving the Tuesday morning death of 83-year-old Leona Faye Swafford.

An Arlington police statement says a man approached and assaulted the woman as she pulled into her driveway. After a struggle, the assailant drove off in the woman's car with her inside.

Police say the woman's body was found around about 1½ hours later, dumped a couple miles from her home. Her car was later found abandoned in an apartment parking lot.

Police say the victim suffered head trauma. An autopsy has been ordered.
