5 die in Dominican Republic after house set ablaze
Authorities in the Dominican Republic say a man locked himself and his family inside their house, then set it on fire, killing all five people.

Prosecutor Gendris Ramirez says neighbors told police they saw 28-year-old Romelio Frias douse the house with gasoline before dawn Tuesday. The victims include his 36-year-old wife, their 3-year-old daughter and 9-year-old twin boys that she had from a previous marriage.

The fire occurred in the community of Veron, just east of the capital of Santo Domingo.
