2 Greene County residents charged with killing 3 in W.Va.
LITTLETON, W.Va. — Two Greene County residents face murder charges in connection with the deaths of three people in West Virginia.
West Virginia State Police spokesman Lt. Michael Baylous says Samuel L. Spencer, 25, and Natasha L. Burns, 26, were arrested Monday by Pennsylvania State Police in Waynesburg.
Spencer and Burns, both of Wind Ridge, are accused of killing Michael McDougle, 63, and Carmen McDougle, 55, both of Littleton; and Jimmy Kisner, 48, of Aleppo.
Baylous says the McDougles and Kisner died at the scene of a fire at the McDougles' house in Littleton on Jan. 13. A preliminary investigation found that the fire was suspicious.
Extradition proceedings for Spencer and Burns are scheduled for July 28. Each is charged with three first-degree murder counts.
