Woman, 70, slain in Cocoa home: church carpool driver attacked when he knocked on her door
Cocoa police say a 70-year-old woman was killed and a man who drove a church carpool was attacked when he knocked on her door to pick her up.
Police believe the man may have interrupted the crime around 9 a.m. Sunday in Cocoa. He was taken to the hospital with unspecified injuries.
Florida Today reports the suspect may be driving the woman's dark green Ford Fusion. Some of her belongings were found Sunday afternoon along a roadside in Port St. John. Police are treating that location as a crime scene.
Police say an autopsy is scheduled for Monday. They have not released the names of the woman or the man who was injured.
No further details were immediately available.
