The Franklin County coroner's office says autopsy results show the man who died in a southeast side house fire in January that killed his 2-year-old daughter and his wife probably set himself ablaze first. 

42-year-old Gary Morris, 33-year-old wife Nerissa Distin, and 2-year-old daughter Serena Morris were killed in the blaze at a Retriever Road home. The case is being investigated as a double-murder and suicide.
