Associated Press

PALATKA, Fla. — North Florida authorities are widening the manhunt for two escaped jail inmates who are linked to the slaying of a 66-year-old woman while on the run.

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.

Sheriff's Lt. Johnny Greenwood says Googe was related to one of the inmates.
