    (KUTV) -- Two daughters of a slain West Valley City code enforcement officer, speaking out today for the first time about their mother.

    Katie and Halie Merrill, described the call they got Thursday about their mother having been shot and killed on the job as “the worst moment” of their lives.

    They went on to give us some insight into the kind of mother, Robinson was. They described her as a creative person, always decorating the house – someone who already had her Halloween 2018 décor ready to go.

    The girls told 2 News, their mother lived for her grandkids, Izac and Zayne, who were her entire world.

    Robinson had worked with the city for just over 10 years. Her girls say she celebrated her job anniversary every year. We’re told Robinson had never expressed any fears about her job, it was simply something she loved doing and just wanted to make her community better in any way she could.

    Robinson was shot and killed Thursday, allegedly by Kevin Billings. Robinson had gone to his home regarding a code enforcement issue. He also allegedly set her truck – and a neighbour’s home – on fire.

    Billings is being held in the Salt Lake County jail on a trio of felony charges including aggravated murder.
