Couple found dead after Finchley fire identified

11:04 24 January 2013

Two pensioners who were found dead following a house fire in Finchley have been identified.

Police were called to Fallow Court Avenue on Tuesday at around 6.15am.

A 69-year-old man and an 80-year-old woman were pronounced dead at the scene.

The police are awaiting formal identification but believe the couple to be Chloe Siokos and Argyrios Siokos, who were married and lived at the property.

Post-mortems for the Greek couple will be arranged in due course. Scotland Yard said Mrs Siokos has injuries inconsistent with the fire being the cause of her death.

Detectives from the Homicide and Serious Crime Command are investigating, but no one else is sought in connection with the incident.
