DIXON — A Rockford man charged in the deaths of two people has pleaded not guilty to murdering one of them at a northern Illinois highway rest stop.

According to Sauk Valley Media, Terence P. Doddy pleaded not guilty Monday in Dixon to 12 counts of first-degree murder and other charges in the July 1 strangling of Tonya Bargman on Monticello. She was killed as she left a bathroom at the Willow Creek rest stop on Interstate 39 near Paw Paw.

Doddy previously pleaded not guilty to murder charges in the June 30 killing of co-worker and former friend Todd Hansmeier of Rockford.

Doddy, who is 36, was arrested July 4 after a police chase near Beloit, Wisconsin. He is being held in Winnebago County Jail without bond.
