DIXON, Ill. (AP) — A Rockford man has pleaded guilty to killing a woman at a northern Illinois highway rest stop a day after he allegedly killed a co-worker.

Thirty-seven-year-old Terence Doddy faces life in prison under a deal with prosecutors after entering the plea Wednesday in Lee County in the slaying of 44-year-old Tonya Bargman on Monticello. She was strangled July 1 as she left a restroom at the Willow Creek rest stop on Interstate 39 near Paw Paw. Doddy was arrested three days later after a police chase near Beloit, Wisconsin.

Doddy is expected to plead guilty to a charge Monday in Winnebago County in connection with the slaying of 37-year-old Todd Hansmeier.

State's attorneys in Lee and Winnebago Counties collaborated in putting together the plea agreement for Doddy.
