Two men, including the victim’s husband, have been charged with murder and arson charges in connection with a Pickering house fire that left one woman dead.

Carmela Knight was found amid the rubble of her home on Sept. 18 of last year in a fire Durham Regional Police quickly deemed suspicious.

Police revealed little about their investigation on Friday, but said 42-year-old David Knight — Carmela’s husband — and 28-year-old Graham Thomas MacDonald have been charged with first-degree murder and arson in the case.

Durham police are still looking for more information. Anyone with tips is asked to contact the homicide unit at 1-888-579-1520. Anonymous tips can be made to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
