SACRAMENTO - Two women found dead in a burning home last Friday were shot first, according to the El Dorado County Sheriff's Office.
Sheriff officials said Crystal Ann Ward, 58, and Carolyn Hague, 62, both died from gunshot wounds.
"We don't know if someone came in here and shot them, " Ron Hague, Carolyn Hague's brother, said. "I don't know why someone would want to come in here and kill my sister."
Ron Hague said the couple had some relationship problems.
"I found out yesterday they were having problems, not physical, but they were fighting," Ron Hague said.
The bodies of both women were discovered by firefighters in a bedroom of the burning home on the 1600 block of Rose Lane on Friday, March 7.
