    GRANT COUNTY, Ark. (KTHV) - The Grant County Sheriff's Office has named two persons of interest in a murder case from last year.

    Danny Joe Stivers was found dead 11 miles south of Sheridan inside a burning home. Grant County Sheriff Ray Vance named Matthew and Terra Jones as persons of interest in the murder.

    Terra Jones was formerly married to Stivers, but the two divorced shortly before he died last February.

    Last February, flames consumed the house and killed 46-year-old Danny Stivers. Investigators labeled Stivers' death a homicide.

    "He had custody of the boys, and all this went down the weekend--his birthday was February the first--it was the weekend of the kids for her, and he was delivering them to her in Hope, and that's the night all this went down," said Tim Stivers, Danny's brother.

    The Stivers family announced they will offer up $10,000 for any information leading to arrests.

    "Somebody out here might of seen something or heard something," said Tim Stivers.

    Grant County Sheriff Ray Vance said Mathew and Terra Jones have been questioned in Grant County and in Bossier Parish, Louisiana where the two live. Despite naming persons of interest, Sheriff Vance said the department needs more information from the public.

    "It was on a major highway at 8 o'clock at night. We feel like someone somewhere out there has seen something in that vicinity, something suspicious something out of the ordinary or just happen to pass by and see vehicles, individuals. Whatever would help our investigation. That's what we're looking for," explained Vance.

    Tim Stivers said the last year of trials took a toll on his family, and he just wants justice.

    "We worry more about the two kids that he had than anything else. We're just waiting to get that phone call from the law officers of Grant County," said Stivers.
