BIG BEAR LAKE, Calif. (AP) -- Officials say burned remains found in a California mountain cabin have been positively identified as fugitive former police officer Christopher Dorner.

San Bernardino County sheriff's spokeswoman Jodi Miller said Thursday that the identification was made through Dorner's dental records.

Dorner is accused of killing 4 people, including two law enforcement officials. He was killed Tuesday after getting into a shootout with officers. He was on the run for a week after seeking revenge for being fired in 2008.
