Police received two 911 calls shortly after 1 a.m. Saturday and went to the 1400 block of Southwest Kamchatka Avenue, said police spokesman Officer Tom Nichols. Officers arrived to find the front door ajar and, behind it, the dead man with burns on his body.
Officers found the woman dead in a back bedroom that had smoke damage from a fire set with gasoline, Nichols said.

There’s probably a good story here but we will never know it.
A modern-day ending to the Snow White tale.
Sometimes you can see trouble a mile off.
“I will never forget it, you know? It was on the occasion of Ernie’s eightieth birthday, and in honor of the occasion, he married a twenty year old girl. And he rang me up the very next day and he said to me ‘Soph! Soph! I have just married myself a twenty year old girl! What do you think of that?’. And I said to him ‘Ernie, when I am eighty years old, I shall marry myself a twenty year old boy...and let me tell you something, Ernie! Twenty goes into eighty a hell of a lot more than eighty goes into twenty!’”
I would think that after 78 years of life a man would figure out that a rational twenty one year old isn’t marrying you out of love and devotion. What a world.
D*mn. Sounds like we lost a good candidate for head of the IMF.
It was probably their six month anniversary. I think that’s lead.
She threatened to leave him for his younger brother.
Maybe it was similar to a “Two and a Half Men” episode.
he probably couldn’t get past all that smooth texture skin and pleasant smell
Never underestimate the power of self delusion.
A guy will wind a strand of hair over his bald pate, look in the mirror and think “I have hair”.
A guy will suck in his gut wear his belt lower and lower and still think he is as skinny as he has ever been.
A 78 year old will marry a 21 year old and think that she actually loves him for himself.
I guess the newspaper employees did not have a photo to print . . . .
LOL... I'm not even 50 yet and I have shoes older than his wife. And socks too. :-)
Another testimonial on why it’s fantastic for American men to reject American women for foreign child brides.
Now, let the FR flaming begin and lecture me about your hot Ukranian wife who loves you for YOU... not the green card.
My yard work shoes are 35 years old...
I have a friend who married a beautiful 24 year old when he was 65. He was always fairly wealthy.
He recently told me they were having financial difficulties. I didn’t ask him how that happened but I have a good idea.
My chukka boots will be 22 in December.
