LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Arson is suspected of killing a husband and wife in Little Rock early Wednesday morning.
Cassandra Davis with Little Rock Police said fire department investigators determined a fire at 405 Markwood Road was a result of arson. The deaths of Donald Creer, 50, and Donna Creer, 57, are now considered 'suspicious.'
Firefighters were dispatched to the home about 3:11 a.m. Once on scene, they removed both bodies, which were taken to area hospitals. Both Donald and Donna were pronounced dead at their respective hospitals. Davis said there did not appear to be injuries to the victims, but a cause of death has not been determined.
"I'm not really at liberty to say what evidence leads us to believe that the deaths are suspicious, but we are investigating to determine what occurred inside the house," said Davis.
