CHESTERFIELD, VA—Authorities have identified the Chesterfield County husband and wife found dead inside their burning home in what police called an apparent domestic-related murder-suicide.
Police identified the victims as Walter M. Hester Jr., 50, and his wife, 46-year-old Clara L. Morgan-Hester. Both were pronounced dead on scene.
The bodies were found inside a home in the 2000 block of Castle Glen Court at about 11:30 p.m. Thursday, when firefighters responded to reports of a house fire.
Evidence at the scene suggests the husband shot his wife before setting multiple fires inside the home and then turning the gun on himself, police said.
Fire investigators said they believe an accelerant was used to start the fires.
There was no documented history of domestic violence at the residents, but interviews with those who knew the couple indicate there may have been marital problem, according to police.
Police said the couple's 13-year-old son wasn't home at the time of the incident; he is currently staying with relatives.
Police continue their investigation; anyone with any information should contact the Chesterfield County Police 804-748-1251
