A fire that burned the inside of a home and left one woman dead on Dec. 18 has been ruled a means of suicide, according to Killeen police.

The body of Robin Ann Hetherington, 56, was found in her home in the 2700 block of Taft Street. Property records list Hetherington as the owner of the home where she was found.

Police were patrolling the area when they heard an alarm, which was traced to Taft Street. Officers looked through an open window and saw a woman lying on the floor. Officers entered and found Hetherington dead on the kitchen floor.

Killeen police said Thursday that evidence at and taken from the scene, and the history at the residence, indicates a flammable liquid was poured in the interior of the structure and ignited. The fire was intentionally set and determined to have been used as a means of suicide.
