ROCKFORD (AP) – A man suspected in two Illinois homicides who was arrested after a high-speed chase appeared during a court appearance to be injured.

Police say they arrested Terence Doddy on July 4 after the car he drove crashed into a tree near Beloit, Wisconsin.

According to the Rockford Register-Star, Doddy used a wheelchair and had black eyes when he appeared in a Janesville, Wisconsin, courtroom Monday. Details of his injuries were unavailable.

Doddy is charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated. He has not entered a plea.

Illinois State Police say the Doddy, 36, is a suspect in the late-June killing of 37-year-old co-worker Todd Hansmeier of Rockford and the July 1 death of 44-year-old Tonya Bargman of Monticello at an Interstate 39 rest stop.

Illinois authorities plan to extradite Doddy.
