Sheriff: Suspects trained before Fla. couple slain

PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) -- Investigators say the men suspected of killing a Florida couple trained for a month to rob the couple's home.

Seven men have been jailed in last week's shootings of Byrd and Melanie Billings in their home near Pensacola. The couple had 17 children -- four biological and 13 adopted. Nine were at the home when the Billingses were shot.

The county sheriff discussed the case on the CBS "Early Show." He says investigators may know who shot the couple, but declined to give more details.

The home had surveillance cameras, which caught the images of several of the intruders.
