MANASSAS, Va. (AP) - Prince William County Police say a man has been indicted in murder charges in a Manassas house fire that killed two men.

The department said in a news release that on Tuesday, a grand jury had returned indictments of two counts of first-degree murder and two counts of felony murder against 36-year-old Noe Antonio Nolasco Amaya.

Officers say the fire broke out on July 31. Thirty-six-year-old Willian Molina-Rivas and 17-year-old Jose Javier Avalos perished in the blaze.

Nolasco Amaya was served the newest charges on Wednesday. He had been charged with arson in the fire and has been held at the Prince William-Manassas Regional Adult Detention Center since August.
