Last updated on Thursday, November 24, 2011

(ROCHESTER) - Authorities are searching for a man wanted after a chase that led to two arrests in the slaying of an 81-year-old woman in Fulton County.

The body of 81-year-old Wilma Upsall was found Tuesday night in her home. An autopsy Wednesday determined that Upsall had been shot to death. Police said there were signs of forced entry into the home, which Upsall shared with her daughter and son-in-law.

Officers attempted to stop a car Tuesday night and a pursuit began when the driver refused to stop.

Three occupants of the car fled on foot. After an overnight manhunt, 25-year-old William Scroggs and 34-year-old Jason Miller were apprehended. They each face murder, burglary and robbery charges. Police are still searching for 24-year-old Roy Bell.
