A husband and wife, described by neighbors as quiet people who adored their 13-month-old daughter, Donalyn, were arrested on suspicion of murder after the child died in what apparently was an arson fire in the couple's North Long Beach apartment, police said. Officers said Donald Simmons, 33, and his wife, Marilyn, 32, were taken into custody when they returned to their charred, second-floor apartment in the 6400 block of Atlantic Avenue, after drinking at a neighborhood bar. Simmons also was booked on suspicion of arson and his wife for investigation of child abuse, police said.
