Investigators determined the fire was intentionally set early Sunday in the master bedroom of the Montgomery Township home of 72-year-old John Sheridan and 69-year-old Joyce Sheridan. But they have not released the cause of death for either person.

John Sheridan was pronounced dead at the scene. His wife was taken to a hospital, where she died a short time later.

John Sheridan was president and CEO of Camden-based Cooper University Health Care, which has more than 700 physicians and serves more than half a million patients a year.
