The Associated Press - December 19, 2016 11:28 am

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Oklahoma City police say the deaths of a woman and child found in a house fire have been classified as homicides.

Oklahoma City police identified the two as 40-year-old Julia Mason and 7-year-old Keagon Bruce. Firefighters found the pair while responding to a house fire in northwest Oklahoma City early Saturday. Oklahoma City Police Master Sgt. Gary Knight said Monday that both “had injuries consistent with homicide.”

Knight also said that investigators determined that the house fire was intentionally set.

Mason was pronounced dead at the scene and the child later died at a hospital. No arrests have been announced.
