WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah — Police have arrested a man in connection with the fatal shooting of a code-enforcement officer and are investigating a nearby house fire as arson.

Police said Jill Robinson, 52, was conducting a routine follow-up Thursday morning. They say Kevin Wayne Billings, 64, allegedly shot Robinson and set fire to her city vehicle. He was booked into jail for investigation of aggravated arson and aggravated murder and for arson, reported the Salt Lake Tribune.

A deputy police chief told the Tribune that code-enforcement officers are city employees and are unarmed. They typically deal with issues such as weed control and abandoned vehicles.

In a statement released on Twitter, West Valley City expressed shock and heartbreak at Robinson’s death, noting that she was “a trusted colleague, a loving aunt, a proud mother, and a doting grandmother.”
