Killeen police Wednesday identified a woman found dead inside a home in the 2700 block of Taft Street.

The body of Robin Ann Hetherington, 56, was found Tuesday. 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.

Soot from a fire covered the walls and windows of the home. The fire was extinguished, but investigators have not released any information about whether the fire played a part in Hetherington’s death, which remains under investigation by the Killeen police and fire departments.
