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.
