Eight months after the crime, Hawkins County authorities have charged two suspects in the death of a Surgoinsville man.

During a news conference Wednesday, Sheriff Ronnie Lawson said they are looking for 49-year-old Randy Harr of Kingsport and 40-year- old Lisa Marie Harr of Buffalo, New York.

A Hawkins County grand jury indicted the two on Monday.

The sheriff's department found the victim, Christopher Varalli dead in his home.  Investigators said he was shot and had cyanide in his system.

Randy Harr faces charges of first-degree murder.  He's now on the state's top 10 most wanted list.  Lisa Harr faces lesser charges.

A postal worker first reported the murder after he found a fire coming from Varalli's home.  Investigators say Harr set the fire to help cover the crime.

The sheriff's office has little information on where the two may be but say they are somewhere on the east coast.
