EUFAULA, Okla. -- Officials have released the names of two people found dead after a December mobile home fire and standoff.

Authorities say 36-year-old Seth Mortenson and 53-year-old Kevin Killillay were found dead in the home following the fire.

On December 21, police were called to the home after neighbors reported hearing gunshots then seeing the home on fire. 

After they arrived, deputies were allegedly confronted by a man, Trevor Armstrong, 34, who had a shotgun who held them at bay for several hours until his arrest.

Armstrong was arrested on complaints of arson, being a felon in possession of a firearm and battery on a police officer.
