A march is planned Thursday afternoon in Charlotte’s uptown in memory of a Lincoln County woman who police say was killed by her husband last week.

The victim, Tara Osborne, worked at CMC-Pineville, according to organizers of today’s event, planned from 12:15-1 p.m. at Trade and Tryon streets. The march is sponsored by the Domestic Violence Advocacy Council.

Osborne’s body was found at her home in Lincoln County early last week. A few hours later, her husband, Anthony, was killed in a shootout with police in Lincolnton.

Organizers of today’s event say 13 people have been killed so far this year in North Carolina domestic-related violence events. That compares to 19 at this point last year, they said.

Free parking is available for today’s march at the Hal Marshall County Services Center, 700 North Tryon Street.
