Toone and the mother were in a relationship, according to Greenville Police Chief Mark Holtzman. He said officers had to force their way inside the home during  a welfare check because the doors were locked.

They believe he then stole an SUV and drove about 160 miles before stopping at a convenience store on Hopkins Road in Southside Richmond. Toone was taken into custody just before midnight Wednesday.

Police haven't released the names of the victims, nor have they indicated a motive.

Toone is expected to appear in court Wednesday morning.

Police in Greenville planned to release more information during a press conference scheduled for 11 a.m. Wednesday.

The investigation is ongoing.
