A neighbor is being questioned in connection with the murder of an 89-year-old Crest Hill woman whose body was found inside her burning home Sunday.

Firefighters found Dorothy Dumyahn's body on Sunday. Investigators later determined she had been killed and the fire was set to cover up the crime.

On Thursday, a spokesperson for the Will County state's attorney says a 48-year-old neighbor is being held on probable cause of first-degree murder and arson. Formal charges are pending.
