A West Valley City, UT, code-enforcement officer was shot and killed on Thursday, and a house fire near where the woman's body was found is being investigated as arson, according to the Salt Lake Tribune.

"We are shocked and heartbroken by the death of Code Enforcement Officer Jill Robinson," the city said in a statement on Twitter. "Jill worked for WVC for more than ten years, and was a trusted colleague, a loving aunt, a proud mother, and a doting grandmother."

Two West Valley City police officers arrived at the scene shortly after the shooting, reportedly ordering the suspect to get on the ground. He complied and was taken into custody without incident.

West Valley City police said 64-year-old Kevin Wayne Billings was booked into jail for investigation of aggravated arson and aggravated murder, which are first-degree felonies, and for arson, which is a second-degree felony.

Heartbreaking! And after the A-Hole surrendered all he could say is I want my lawyer! Just speculating but bet I am pretty close to being right. Unfortunately this piece of garbage will get 3 hots and a cot for a long time to come, unless of course the liberal finatics choose to let him loose. Nothing would surprise me.

My condolences to the family, officers and city police who she worked for. Damn shame. I really hope the state officials do what is right and give this killer his just dues.
