A FIRE started deliberately at a house in Elsecar which killed two people has been referred for a domestic homicide review.
Katherine Collard, 55, and Erwin Albers, 62, died in the fire at their home on Cherry Tree Street in July, an inquest in Sheffield was told.
Det Sgt Liza-Jo Hope said the case had been referred for the review and said the emergency services were called after a neighbour saw Katherine at the back bedroom window crying for help as the fire took hold.
