Eastern KY Fire Deaths Ruled Homicide

Police in Morgan County now say a woman and her adult son, found inside their burning home, were intentionally killed.

The home, along Kentucky 191 in Cannel City went up in flames last week.

The victims were identified as 81-year-old Bernice Elam and her son, 54-year-old Mickey Elam.

State police originally said they didn't suspect foul play but say evidence collected at the scene, and autopsy results, have since led them to think the two people were killed.
