Their bodies were found after a fire was reported Saturday morning in Robbins' home. Investigators found a suicide note in Robbins' car.

Janice Robbins adopted her granddaughter after her father died while serving in Iraq in 2005. The sheriff's office quoted Robbins' note as saying she couldn't stand to leave her granddaughter behind.
