Family members tell WKYT that police have questioned two men for the murder of 86-year-old Anna Marshall. Marshall's body was found in her burned Waco area home in March.

Kentucky State Police officials say they took the two as witnesses, not suspects. They say officers were back out in the neighborhood looking for more information in the case, leading them to invite the two men to answer some questions.

26-year-old Dewayne Biggs says he was questioned by police this morning.

"Police treated me nice," he said while smoking a cigarette near his front porch shortly after he was brought home. "I guess they're just trying to figure it out. But they're looking at the wrong person when it comes to what happened to my grandmother."

Dewayne Biggs is actually Marshall's great grandson. He lives less than a mile from her home where police say she was beaten before her home was burned down last month.

"It makes you feel like a dog," Dewayne Biggs said of being questioned. "Its like you don't even wanna leave the house from where people think you did something like this."

State Police say they have firm leads in he case, but no suspects. Right now, they're hoping to make a case strong enough to pass on to the grand jury. They also say they don't anticipate any arrests soon.

Marshall is the mother of former longtime Madison County school superintendent, Glenn Marshall.
