The Associated Press

EAST LIVERPOOL, Ohio — Investigators have determined that an eastern Ohio man set a fire two months ago that killed him and his three young sons.

Officials say 37-year-old Ulrick Estimot locked himself and the boys in their East Liverpool home on March 17 before setting himself and the house on fire. The arson has been ruled a murder-suicide.

The boys were ages 11, 7 and 5.

Police say the fire happened a day after Estimot and his girlfriend, the mother of two of the children, decided to separate.
