Authorities Monday found Christa Higgins Chidester, 34, and her daughter, Sarah Elizabeth Higgins, dead in their home on Tree Hill Road, in the affluent Union County town of Weddington.
Chidester, an unemployed mother going through an acrimonious divorce, was found in the attic. Sarah was found in a bedroom. They were believed to have died Friday, the day Chidester was to have vacated the house under the terms of her divorce from Mark Chidester, a vice president at Family Dollar Stores Inc. in Matthews.

Breaks my heart too. Christa and Sarah deserved better than Mark - he was a real jerk even when they were in Florida.
