PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) — Authorities in Florida say a man they're searching for in connection with three deaths in the Panhandle and in Alabama is now suspected in a home invasion.

Escambia County Sheriff David Morgan told reporters that 44-year-old William "Billy" Eugene Boyette is suspected of shooting a woman during a home invasion Monday morning near Pensacola. Morgan says Kayla Crocker was taken to a hospital for treatment. Her 2-year-old son wasn't injured.

Boyette is suspected in the deaths of Alicia Greer and Jacqueline Moore in Milton, Florida, and Peggy Broz in Lillian, Alabama.

Morgan says 37-year-old Mary Rice, who is believed to be traveling with Boyette, took Crocker's 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt.

Morgan says the pair went to a nearby gas station and a Hardee's restaurant after the attack.
