PRESCOTT VALLEY - We now know the identities of two people whose bodies were found inside a burning home in Prescott Valley last month.

Police say they are the homeowner Katherine Now, 49, and her tenant Henry James Hill, 67.

Officers believe Hill was renting a room from Now and at some point during the morning of February 24 he shot her to death.

He then reportedly took his own life shortly after setting fire to the home.

Investigators had treated the fire as suspicious from the beginning.

The fire reportedly broke out just before 6:20 on the morning of February 24.
