RUTLAND, Vt. (AP) — The death of a man in the city of Rutland last week has been preliminarily ruled a homicide, police said Monday.

The man has been identified as Sincere Johnson, 46, of New York, police said.

A Vermont man and a woman who were arrested in New Hampshire last week on unrelated charges await questioning about the death, police said.

The two allegedly fled the scene of a crash and then broke into a post office in Salisbury, New Hampshire, before they were taken into custody, police said.

It wasn’t immediately known if they had lawyers.
