COLUMBUS, Ohio (WSAZ) --The Ohio Attorney General is spotlighting a Piketon double murder in an effort to solve the six-year-old crime.

Jennifer Burgette and her fiance, Curtis Francis, were shot while they were asleep in the home they shared on Hopper Road in Piketon in December of 2006.

Authorities say they believe more than one person witnessed the murders and that the person responsible likely knew the couple.

Pike County, Ohio Sheriff Richard Henderson says he is hoping to be able to finally give the families of the victims some closure.

Henderson says the detectives who worked on this case have exhausted all leads.

Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation agents are now looking at the case.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the BCI at 855-224-6446.
