    woman said she fatally shot her co-worker because she received "signs from God" and was so cooperative with investigators that she even told them which hand to test for gunpowder residue, police said Thursday.

    Theresa Gail Robbins, 48, remained in the Dallas County Jail on Thursday on a murder charge. Bond was set at $500,000.

    Carrollton police said Robbins was taken into custody Wednesday after killing co-worker Greg Brasch of McKinney at the pest control business where they worked. After shooting him, Robbins sat down in another co-worker's office and waited for police, officials said.

    Police said there was no indication of a problem between Brasch and Robbins.

    Robbins told police Brasch was her closest friend and that she killed him because God wanted her to "distribute the world order information," according to an arrest affidavit.

    There was no attorney listed for Robbins in online jail records. No one immediately responded to a message left at her home.

    Investigators were about to test her left hand for gunpowder residue when she stopped them and explained she shot Brasch with her right hand, police said.

    There is a tribute to Brasch on the website for Bizzy Bees, the pest control business. Beneath a photo of Brasch are the years he lived, 1953-2010, and a message: "In loving memory of our beloved teammate Greg Brasch. You will forever be missed."
