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

Muse and Martin are lodged inside the Benton County Jail. It's not clear whether either man has an attorney who might comment on the case.

Police have not released Riegle's cause of death.

Police also have not released a motive for the slaying.

Fowler is about 70 miles south of Gary.
