SPARTANBURG, S.C. - Spartanburg police now say the death of a woman found in a house fire earlier this year was a homicide.

The Herald-Journal of Spartanburg reported that police have concluded that 63-year-old Willie Mae Gray did not die of injuries in the June 17 fire.

Capt. Regina Nowak said new information from the Spartanburg County coroner's office showed that the trauma on Gray's body was not caused by the fire.

Nowak says the cause of the fire has not been determined. She says it's unclear whether the fire was set.

Police are looking for suspects in Gray's death.
