HANCOCK, Mich. (AP) - Upper Peninsula authorities say a man died after assaulting his girlfriend and setting his house on fire.

The attack happened about 5 p.m. Friday in Hancock.

Police Chief Mike Beaudoin says the man assaulted his girlfriend before starting the blaze.

The Daily Mining Gazette of Houghton (https://bit.ly/1lfGGek ) says that Houghton County Sheriff’s Department deputies entered the house with shields and found the man and woman.

Authorities say emergency crews took both to Portage Health. Beaudoin says the woman was bleeding from a head injury.

Police haven’t identified the man or woman. The Associated Press left a phone message Monday seeking information on the cause of the man’s death from the county medical examiner, Dr. Dawn Nulf.
