    A Mississippi woman was charged Wednesday with murdering three people who were found dead a day earlier inside their home, and another suspect in the slayings killed himself after ramming police vehicles, authorities said.

    Ruby Yolanda Parker, 31, of Poplarville, Miss., is charged with three counts of felony capital murder, according to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. Authorities believe robbery was the motive. They also believe the victims knew the suspect, Richard Harry Harker, 35, of Hawthorne, Fla., who committed suicide.
    While investigating the murders, authorities learned that one of the victim's vehicles was missing and had been spotted on the Big Cypress Indian Reservation. FDLE agents responded along with reservation police and a pursuit ensued Tuesday.

    Harker, who was driving the vehicle, rammed two police patrol cars until he came to a stop, authorities said.

    He then shot himself in the head and died. Parker, who was a passenger in the vehicle, was arrested.
