Terrance Doddy, 36, of Rockford, Illinois, was apprehended in
Beloit, Wisconsin, after leading police on a high-speed car chase
across the Illinois-Wisconsin border, police said. Police earlier in
the week said his first name was spelled Terence.
Doddy is suspected of killing a woman at a rest stop west of Chicago
and taking her car a day after killing a man in the northern part of
the state, authorities said.
The car chase began when the stolen vehicle was spotted by an
Illinois State Police trooper, Rockford police said in a statement.
Attempting to flee police at speeds exceeding 100 mph (160 kph),
Doddy lost control of the car and crashed into a tree on Highway 81
in Beloit, police said.
"After a short struggle, Doddy was taken into custody," police said
in the statement.
He was hospitalized for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries
suffered in the crash, police said.
Doddy is wanted in the killings of Todd Hansmeier, 37, on Monday in
Rockford and Tonya Bargman, 44, at a rest stop on Interstate 39
about 40 miles (64 km) south of Rockford on Tuesday night.
Police have said surveillance video showed Bargman being attacked by
a man as she left a restroom at the Willow Creek rest stop.

Doddy was seen leaving the rest stop in Bargman's car, police said.
He faces charges of first-degree murder and domestic battery in
connection with the earlier incident, police said. No charges have
yet been established in connection with the rest stop incident, a
Rockford police spokesman said.
