ROCKFORD, Ill. (AP) — A man accused of killing a high school friend was charged Tuesday in a second northern Illinois killing.

Prosecutors in Illinois' Lee County filed 12 murder counts against 36-year-old Terrence Doddy of Rockford in the July 1 death of 44-year-old Tonya Bargman. Other charges include robbery, concealment of a homicidal death and possession of a stolen motor vehicle and credit card.

Doddy is accused of asphyxiating Bargman at a rest stop at Paw Paw along Interstate 39 before stealing the Monticello woman's car.

Doddy already was charged in Winnebago County in the June 30 killing of 37-year-old Rockford insurance salesman Todd Hansmeier, who was found dead of head and neck injuries at a business.

Doddy was arrested July 4 after a police chase near Beloit, Wisconsin. Authorities say he was driving Bargman's car. Hansmeier's car was found abandoned at the rest stop where Bargman's body was located.

Doddy has pleaded not guilty in Winnebago County and is to be arraigned Wednesday in Lee County.

Doddy has been appointed representation by a public defender in Winnebago County, though it was not immediately clear Tuesday whether he had an attorney to represent him in Lee County.

He remains jailed without bond.
