COLLEGE STATION – Scholarships have been established in memory of the Aggie father and daughter found dead after a house fire.

Firefighters found the bodies of Noel Devin and her father, Thomas “Mac” Devin, Monday after putting out the fire that destroyed her home on Vinewood Drive in Bryan. Police have arrested a man they say broke into Noel’s home, set it on fire and stole her SUV. The medical examiner has not released a cause of death. But capital murder charges are expected.
