Tequesta - Authorities in Florida say a man who may have been on a hallucinogenic drug fatally stabbed a married couple, biting off part of the man's face before wounding a would-be rescuer.

Martin County Sheriff William Snyder told reporters on Tuesday that a man in his 20s may have been on drugs when he attacked the couple at their Tequesta home late on Monday and the neighbour who tried to stop him. Authorities were still trying to confirm the suspect's identity.

Snyder said deputies found the man on top of the dead husband and it took several attempts to pull him off. The names of the victims haven't been released. Snyder said the neighbour is hospitalised with "substantial trauma".

Snyder said deputies are also searching for a 26-year-old woman associated with the suspect, saying she might also be a victim.
