Police: 2 escaped Fla. inmates kill 1, steal cars

PALATKA, Fla. (AP) - Authorities believe two escaped Florida inmates who are still on the loose killed a 66-year-old woman and stole two cars.

Police say 23-year-old Doni Ray Brown and 25-year-old Timothy Wayne Fletcher broke out of the Putnam County Jail in Palatka at 4
a.m. Wednesday and stole a truck. Palatka is about 40 miles east of
Gainesville in northeastern Florida.

Later, authorities discovered a car missing and its owner, Helen
Key Googe, dead inside her Palatka home.

Putnam County Lt. Johnny Greenwood says Googe was related to one
of the suspects.

Brown was arrested Aug. 17 and charged with robbery with a
firearm. Fletcher was arrested March 3 on three counts of failure
to appear on an aggravated assault charge.

Police would not say how the pair escaped.
