The two people found dead after a house fire in Severn earlier this month have been identified, Anne Arundel County Police said.
Firefighters were called out to the home on Old Camp Meade Road Dec.10, first finding the body of Diana Knight, 59, in the rubble. Police said she died from trauma, not the fire.
Crews later found the body of Jeffrey Deberry, who lived in the home with Knight.
Earlier in December, Knight was granted a protective order against Deberry, police said.
