The bodies of an Iraqi war veteran and his wife are found in Riverside and authorities are calling it a homicide.
Officials said the bodies of Sgt. Jan P. Pietrzak, 24, and his wife, Quianna Jenkins- Pietrzak 26, were found on Oct. 15 in their home in Winchester. An autopsy found both died from gunshot wounds to the head.
Pietrzak served with Operation Iraqi Freedom as a member of the 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing. He was a helicopter airframe mechanic with Marine Medium Helicopter Squadron 164.
Pietrzak was from Brooklyn, New York.
Officials said the bodies were found after arson investigators responded to a fire at the home. Sheriff's deputies said it appears the fire was set "in what was an unsuccessful attempt to burn evidence."
