Willow Springs House Fire Leads To Murder-Suicide Investigation

Willow Springs House Fire Leads To Murder-Suicide Investigation

By Austin Robertson. CREATED Dec 29, 2013

A husband and wife from Willow Springs were found dead inside their burning mobile home, but it wasn't the fire that killed them.

The Howell County Sheriff's Office says cars and outbuildings on the property had been torched, along with the mobile home where Dwayne and Star Arnett's bodies were found.

Authorities say it appears that Star died from a blow to the head and that Dwayne fatally shot himself. Their deaths are being investigated as a murder-suicide.
