Kentucky State Police Trooper Jeff Gregory said rewards in the case now total $218,000.

The FBI was holding a news conference Monday to announce the reward for information leading to identification, arrest and conviction of whomever is responsible for Ellis' death and to release a revised poster seeking information in the case.

The 33-year-old officer had a K-9 partner, Figo, who was retired after Ellis' death and now lives with Ellis' family. Ellis was survived by his wife and two sons.

The shooting remains under investigation, and no suspects have been identified.
