    The end came suddenly for Werner Foerster, a 34-year-old state trooper executed with his own gun on the New Jersey Turnpike in 1973. For many others — his widow, the State Police and the woman convicted of his murder — the end remains elusive, postponed these 40 years by a fight over what justice really means.

    Law enforcement officials advanced their side of that debate on Thursday by placing Joanne D. Chesimard, who was convicted of the murder in 1977, on the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s list of Most Wanted Terrorists. She became the first woman named to the list, and only the second domestic terrorist, the agency said.

    The reward for Ms. Chesimard’s capture and repatriation from Cuba, where she moved after escaping from prison in 1979, was doubled to $2 million.

    Interestingly, she was related to Tupac Shakur (a step aunt or something like that).
