The FBI has joined a manhunt for a suspect in the abduction and killings of an elderly Ohio couple who is also believed to have committed armed robberies in three states over the weekend.

A spokeswoman says the FBI is offering a $25,000 reward for information about 29-year-old Robert Clark. They are also looking for his companions: 28-year-old Jeffrey Caley Jr. and 26-year-old Tabatha Hazel.

Clark has been charged with one count of murder in last month's slayings of 88-year-old Doyle Chumney and 79-year-old Lillian Chumney of Strasburg, a village 20 miles south of Canton. Their remains were found inside their torched car the day after they were reported missing.

Clark, Caley and Hazel are suspected of being involved in armed robberies in West Virginia, South Carolina and Georgia.
