A trooper stopped a speeding car on Interstate 75 Wednesday morning and arrested two people wanted for attempted murder in Broward County, a report said.

Florida Highway Patrol Trooper Shelia Walker was on routine patrol on I-75 near mile marker 423 in Columbia County at around 9:30 a.m. when another trooper alerted her of a speeding black four-door Cadillac in a southbound lane.

The other trooper was not near a U-turn cut and was unable to stop the car.

Walker's radar showed the car was going 90 miles an hour and she stopped it at mile marker 414, the report said.

A computer check showed the driver - Neville Oscar Moore, 28, of Pembroke Pines - was wanted in Broward County on charges of attempted murder, false imprisonment and kidnapping.

The passenger - Tawana Denise Duncan, 35, of Miami - was wanted in Broward County on charges of attempted murder, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and false imprisonment.

Moore and Duncan were being held at the Columbia County jail on Wednesday without bond.
