Double homicide victims were alive when vehicles set on fire

Gavel comes down

A forensic pathologist testified Thursday that the victims were still alive when they and the cars they were inside were set on fire in separate, related killings in June 2016.

The forensic pathologist said that both Hill and Metz’s bodies showed signs they were still alive when the fires started. Soot was found in Hill’s mouth and the level of carbon monoxide saturation in his blood was at 7%. In the average nonsmoker, the carboxyhemoglobin level is usually around 1.5%, but in smokers it can be between 5% to 10%.
