SARASOTA, FL (AP) -- Authorities say a Sarasota man wrote a suicide note and turned on a gas generator in his kitchen, killing himself and his 4-year-old daughter. Robert Grier and daughter Kayla were found dead in the same bed Sunday of apparent carbon monoxide poisoning. The Sarasota County Sheriff's Office is calling it a murder-suicide. Court records say Grier, who filed for divorce last year from his disabled wife, had weekend custody of Kayla. She lived with her mother and grandparents the other four days of the week. Neighbors said Grier kept to himself and had been looking for a job as recently as a few months ago. The sheriff's office says Kayla's grandfather discovered the bodies when he went to the house after not getting an expected call from his granddaughter.
