Terence P. Doddy, 36, was indicted Friday for the murder of a high school classmate on June 30.
ROCKFORD — A man suspected of killing a Monticello mother at a rest stop on July 1 has been indicted for the murder of a high school classmate two days earlier.
Terence P. Doddy, 36, was indicted Friday by a Winnebago County grand jury on 11 counts of first-degree murder, one count of robbery, one count of unlawful possession of a stolen vehicle, one count of possession of another's credit card and one count of concealment of a homicidal death.
None of the charges are related to the murder of Tonya "Toni" Bargman of Monticello, 44, whose body was found the night of July 1 by an attendant at the Paw Paw rest area on Interstate 39, south of the Rockford area.
Investigators reviewed surveillance video and determined Mrs. Bargman was attacked by a man as she left the restroom.
Doddy was seen leaving in her vehicle, according to Illinois State Police reports.
That night, investigators issued nationwide alerts for Doddy, who was already wanted by Rockford police in the murder of his former best friend, Todd Hansmeier, 37. Mr. Hansmeier's body, beaten and partially burned, was found on June 30 at a Rockford business by firefighters responding to a call.
Katie Zimmerman with the Winnebago State's Attorney's Office said the 15-count indictment is for the murder of Mr. Hansmeier, which occurred in Winnebago County.
Zimmerman said her office is working closely with the state's attorney in Lee County, where Mrs. Bargman's death occurred.
Zimmerman said Lee County prosecutors and state police are still investigating that murder.
The Lee County state's attorney could not be reached for comment Friday.
Doddy eluded capture until the morning of July 4 in Beloit, Wis. After leading police on a high-speed chase that crossed the state line multiple times, Doddy crashed into a tree while driving Mrs. Bargman's car. He was taken to a Rock County, Wis., hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries from the crash.
Earlier this week, Doddy was transferred from the custody of Rock County authorities in Wisconsin, where he had been arrested, to Winnebago County sheriff's authorities in Rockford.
In his first appearance in Winnebago County court Friday, Doddy pleaded not guilty to all 15 counts. He is being represented by a public defender, Zimmerman said.
In addition to Friday's indictment, Doddy's wife, Charlotte Doddy, filed an order of protection against him on June 18, according to Winnebago County court records.
Doddy also faces a charge of aggravated domestic battery that was filed July 1, court records show.
