Donna Grady-Creer, 57, executive director of the Magnet Review Committee office in North Little Rock and a member of the Broadcasters Hall of Fame for her work in gospel music radio programming, and her husband, Donald, 50, died in a suspicious fire at their Leawood home early this morning.

Firefighters responded to the fire at 307 Markwood at 3:38. and broke through a carport door to gain entry. They told police a sliding glass door to the rear of the house was unlocked. Police are investigating the deaths as suspicious.

LRPD spokesperson Sgt. Cassandra Davis said there were no apparent injuries to the bodies. Here's the police report, and here's a story about the Creers in the Christian Post today.

Police said Little Rock firefighters arrived at the house at 3:18 a.m.
