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.
