FOSTORIA, Ohio (AP) - Two people were ordered by a judge to be held on $2 million bond each on Tuesday in connection with a house fire that killed two people. A third suspect had his bond set at $1.5 million.

Investigators have not released a motive or the names of the victims in the fire, which was ruled arson. Officials have said the fire started at the front of the house early Monday, but they haven’t said how it started.

Police charged Shey Weiker with aggravated murder and aggravated arson. Charges against Charles Schaeffer and Timothy Hall include complicity to commit aggravated murder and complicity to commit arson.

All three are from Fostoria. Messages seeking comment Tuesday were not immediately returned by their attorneys.

The bodies of a man and a woman were found inside the house while another woman was pulled from the house. The woman who survived was being treated at a Toledo hospital.

Fostoria Police Chief Keith Loreno said not all of the three people who were inside the home lived there.
