Wetzel County Murder Suspects Back in West Virginia


Two people charged with first-degree murder in the arson deaths of three people in Wetzel County in January of this year have been extradited back to West Virginia.

Samuel Spencer and Natasha Burns, both of Pennsylvania, were charged with three counts of first-degree murder. An autopsy revealed all three victims were actually stabbed to death before the fire was started. The criminal complaint states the fire on Cliff Run Road in Littleton in January was set to cover up the triple homicide. 

Three people died at the scene as a result of the blaze. Two of the victims were identified as Carmen McDougal, 55, and Michael McDougal, 63, who resided at the house. The third victim was identified as Jimmy Kisner, 48, of Aleppo, Pennsylvania.
