WASHINGTON (AP) - District of Columbia police say a married couple, their 10-year-old son and a housekeeper were found slain in multimillion-dollar Washington home that was set on fire.

Police Chief Cathy Lanier said Friday at least three of the victims suffered stab wounds or blunt force injuries and that all four were homicide victims. She says the injuries occurred before the fire was set Thursday afternoon.

Authorities gave no immediate details who might have killed them or why.

Lanier identified the couple as 46-year-old Savvas Savopoulos, a corporate executive, and his 47-year-old wife Amy Savopoulos. She identified the other two tentatively as the couple's 10-year-old son and a housekeeper.

Police say a Porsche belonging to the family was found Thursday night in Prince George's County, Maryland. The car also was set ablaze.
