(Newser) – A couple tied up and held captive in their cabin by rogue ex-cop Christopher Dorner will be getting most of the $1 million reward in the case. The LAPD says a panel of three judges has decided to give 80% of the payout to Jim and Karen Reynolds, who called 911 after Dorner left and they managed to free themselves, the Los Angeles Times reports. A ski resort employee who contacted authorities after spotting Dorner's burning truck will get 15%, and a tow truck driver who reported seeing the vehicle will get the remaining 5%. Nine other claimants—including a camp ranger carjacked by Dorner—won't be getting a share.

They do not deserve 1M$.. Donate it to something worthy.. Something that will help the problem.. At least I hope they only get 700K after taxes..
