Chandler police have arrested two ex-convicts in the 2008 drug-related shooting death of an Arizona State University student whose body was found in his burning rented home.

Police say 29-year-old Rory Gene Coriell and 27-year-old William Hayden Crawford are jailed on suspicion of first-degree murder in the killing of 25-year-old Zachary Rowe.

Firefighters found Rowe's body in the burning home, and a police affidavit says the fire was set.

The affidavit also says investigators found large amounts of illegal drugs and drug paraphernalia in the home and that informants said Rowe was a marijuana dealer.

Department of Corrections records indicate Coriell was released from prison last March after serving sentences on marijuana and weapons convictions.

DOC records say Crawford was released in November after serving time on a drug conviction.
