Two northwestern Indiana men have been charged with murder and arson in the death of a third man in a house fire, Indiana State Police said Thursday.

Duane Scott Muse, 42 and Rhett Allen Martin, 43, both of Fowler, were arrested in connection with the death of Daniel C. Riegle, 60, police said. Firefighters found Riegle’s body inside his burning Fowler home about 7:50 a.m. on Dec. 6.

Muse and Martin are behind held in the Benton County Jail. It’s not clear whether either man had an attorney who might comment on the case.

Police have not released Riegle’s cause of death or a motive for the slaying.

Fowler is about 90 miles northwest of Indianapolis.
