Authorities are searching for a man, 33, and woman, 44, following the murder of a Brisbane crime figure who was set alight as he slept.
Victor William Graveson, 65, suffered burns to 80 per cent of his body after being doused in petrol at his Alexandra Hills home and then set on fire on Friday night.
Police have since charged David Edgerley, 34, with Mr Graveson’s murder, but hope to speak with the couple as they continue their investigation.
Anyone with any information about the pair’s whereabouts is urged to call police.

Graveson ran burning from his home on September 1 as members of the public rushed to put out the flames.
He was taken to hospital in a critical condition but died on Monday afternoon.
Edgerley was originally charged with attempted murder in relation to Gaveson’s death, but the charge has since been upgraded to murder.
He faced the Brisbane Magistrates Court on Tuesday.
Mr Graveson had a lengthy criminal history, having been jailed for 10 years in 1996 for his role in the sale of a cannabis crop worth almost $2 million.
In 1995, Queensland’s Supreme Court heard Graveson was a criminal ‘mastermind’, with links to a prostitution ring and outlaw bikie gangs who he supplied drugs to.
He has also been photographed partying with crooked cops and strippers in the late 1980s and early 90s.
Mr Graveson was jailed again in 2008 for drug possession offences.
Graveson was allegedly set on fire by David Charles Edgerley, who was facing charges of attempted murder but will face court Tuesday on murder charges after Graveson died
