TOWN OF BELOIT, Wis. — Authorities say they've captured an Illinois man suspected in the deaths of a co-worker and a woman at an interstate rest stop.

Authorities say the man was arrested Friday in Wisconsin after a 25-minute chase.

Illinois State Police say the man is suspected in the deaths of two Illinois residents: 44-year-old Tonya Bargman of Monticello and 37-year-old Todd Hansmeier of Rockford.

Hansmeier's body was found Monday at a call center where the two worked. Bargman was killed Tuesday at an Interstate 39 rest stop.

Authorities say the suspect was driving Bargman's car when police spotted him.

The Rock County Sheriff's Office in Wisconsin says the man lost control after the car's tires were deflated using stop sticks. He crashed into some trees.

Illinois State Police say charges are pending.
