A beleaguered Josh Powell — under suspicion for the 2009 disappearance of his wife and fighting an uphill battle for custody of his two young boys — killed himself and his sons on Sunday by setting fire to his Washington state home, officials said.

Calling it a “double murder/suicide,” authorities said late Sunday the blaze that leveled Powell’s Graham home was “very well-planned” and was fueled by accelerants spread throughout the residence.
