HOUSTON – Police have arrested a man suspected in the beating deaths of a man and woman whose house was set on fire.  

Firefighters found the bodies of 89-year-old Clements Dorsey and his 61-year-old daughter Barbara Alexander Thursday morning inside their home in the 8100 block of Dover in southeast Houston.

Clements Dorsey was a pastor at Holy Temple of Jesus Christ church.

Police said someone killed Clements Dorsey and his daughter and set the house on fire to try to cover their tracks.

“It’s obvious that someone was in a rage when they conducted this crime, and as they went throughout the home,” said Sgt. JJ Wilson with HPD’s Homicide Division. “We have a lot of blood and a lot of evidence from the garage up to the front door of the home.

Police wanted to question Dorsey’s 20-year-old grandson, Cameron Dorsey. He moved in with his grandparents after he was released from jail. Relatives said the grandfather recently told the teen he had to find another place to live.

After the fatal fire police had said Cameron Dorsey was believed to be in his grandparent’s missing SUV. He hasn’t been charged in connection with the deaths of his grandfather and aunt, but he has been charged with unauthorized use of a motor vehicle. He was being held without bond.
