Police still seek other accomplice in slaying of Fla. couple

Posted:

PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) -- Eight people are now charged in a deadly break-in at a Florida Panhandle home. But authorities are still seeking at least one more accomplice who they believe failed his assignment to disable the house's surveillance system.

Footage taken by the cameras helped lead investigators to the suspects in last week's shooting deaths of Melanie and Byrd Billings, who were the parents of 17 children, 13 of them adopted. The videos showed masked men -- some dressed as ninjas -- slipping into front and back doors at the home.

Police have arrested an eighth suspect, 47-year-old Pamela Long Wiggins, charging her with accessory after the fact to felony murder. Seven others have been charged in the killings.
