Arson Suspects Die of Burns

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Two men police believe set a house on
fire over the weekend have died from injuries they received in the
blaze.
Baton Rouge police spokesman Cpl. L'Jean McKneely said that 18-year-old Jamar Boatner and 22-year-old Jermaine
Scott died Sunday at a local hospital.
McKneely said Boatner and Scott suffered third-degree burns over
85 percent of their bodies in a house fire Saturday.
He said investigators believe the men set the structure on fire
by pouring a flammable liquid inside the house and igniting it.
McKneely said the motive for the arson is not known, but remains
under investigation.
