(Gettysburg) -- Adams County Coroner Pat Felix says DNA tests are confirming the identities of two people who died when their small plane crashed last week in a rural area near Gettysburg.

Felix identified the victims as 46-year-old Michael Bronzburg and 17-year-old Miranda Rose.

Felix says Rose is the daughter of Bronzburg's girlfriend, and the three lived together in Catawissa, Columbia County.

Their remains have been released to Kriner Funeral Home in Bloomsburg, which is handling arrangements. Officials said the twin-engine plane went down less than an hour after taking off from Bloomsburg Airport.

The crash left a debris field a quarter-mile long.
