A $75,000 reward is being offered for help finding whoever started a fire that broke out in a converted garage in South Los Angeles, killing a 28-year-old woman and her infant son.

Gisella Yauli and her son were found dead after firefighters put out a fire at their home on the 170 block of E. 50th Street on March 5. Her husband was at work at the time of the fire, and her other son, a 7-year-old boy, was at school.

The deaths were ruled a homicide. Sources told Eyewitness News the coroner found duct tape on the back of one of their necks.

Oscar Reyes, husband of Gisella Yauli, pleaded with the public for information that could lead to an arrest.

"Whatever little information that could help us ... I'd really appreciate it," he said during a news conference.

Anyone with information is urged to call the LAPD at (877) LAPD-24-7.
