A couple suspected of killing a woman in Georgia was captured in Coffee County.

Brandon Smith and Stephanie Rodriguez were taken into custody Saturday night in Manchester. 

Police in Covington, Georgia said the two were wanted for killing 65-year-old Marsha Johnson after they robbed her and then ran her over last week outside a Walmart.

A witness saw the incident and was able to give officers a good description, which ultimately led to their capture.

Smith and Rodriguez were arrested and are facing murder and robbery charges.    

Police said the duo may also be involved in at least 10 other violent purse snatchings all over the south.
