The Alameda County sheriff's office is set to release new details today in the case of a woman found dead inside a burning Castro Valley home.

Fire crews put out the fire at this home on San Carlos Avenue last Thursday. Inside, they found the body of a woman. Sheriff's investigators declared the fire "suspicious" saying there were signs that an accelerant may have been used. The woman's boyfriend, a retired San Francisco firefighter, was not home at the time.
