BELOIT, Wis. – Illinois State Police troopers arrested a Rockford man suspected of killing two people, including a woman at a Lee County rest stop, in Wisconsin on Friday, according to an ISP spokeswoman.

Terence Doddy, 36, was arrested by ISP District 16 troopers around 11:55 a.m. Friday, on state Route 81 and Paddock Road, just west of Beloit, according to Monique Bond, an ISP spokeswoman.

According to state police, Doddy is a suspect in the killing of 44-year-old Tonya Bargman, of Monticello, on Tuesday at the Willow Creek rest stop near Paw Paw along Interstate 39. He is also a suspect in the killing of Todd Hensmeier, 37, on Monday in Rockford.

The Associated Press reported a surveillance video showed the woman being attacked as she left a restroom at the rest stop.

Bond said Doddy was in possession of Bargman's 2013 gray Nissan Altima when he was arrested.

The search for Doddy was expanded Thursday to include the Rockford Police Department, the U.S. Marshals Service, and law enforcement nationwide, according to a news release.
