The St. Francois County Sheriff's Office is now investigating Monday's fatal fire near Park Hills as a double homicide.
Firefighters arrived about 4:30 a.m. to find the home on Halter Lane fully involved. Authorities say flames were too intense to try to attempt a rescue.
Firefighters later found the body 50 year old Stanley Halter on a back porch and that of 46 year old Tammy Halter in the kitchen. The couples children were not home at the time of the fire.
Authorities aren't releasing the couples cause of death, only saying that the autopsies gave them reasonable cause to pursue a homicide investigation.

St. Louis County Councilwoman Kathleen Burkett has died. After a nearly year-long battle with cancer, the 68 year old Burkett passed away at her Overland home Sunday morning.
Burkett had represented the 2nd Council District since 2002. She had been a longtime fixture of the St. Louis County Democratic Party, and had chaired the County's Democratic Central Committee through most of the 1990s.
During her tenure, she was a fierce opponent of the anti-smoking ban and was well known for her outspoken demeanor.
County Executive Charlie Dooley issued a statement Sunday praising Burkett as someone who took care of her constituents "like they were her own family."
A special election to fill her seat will be held as part of the November 4th general election.
A school bus driver in St. Charles County caught texting while driving is now out of work.
Officials with the Francis Howell School District tell the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that a middle-school student had taken a video of the driver texting with kids on board Thursday. Parents contacted the district about the incident.
Francis Howell spokeswoman Jennifer Henry tells the paper that the company the driver worked for fired the driver as a result of the incident.
The driver isn't likely to face a citation since Missouri law only bars texting while driving for drivers age 21 and under.
