Posted: Sunday, October 03, 2010

ANCHORAGE - A well-known Anchorage runner has died after being shot in her home, and her husband has been charged with murder.

The Anchorage Daily News reports that 40-year-old Jocelyn Luch was shot Tuesday night. Anchorage Police say grown children in the home reported that the shooting happened after the couple had an argument.

Her 62-year-old husband, Robert Luch, was taken to police headquarters where he began having medical problems and passed out. He remained in the hospital and has been charged with first-degree murder.

Jocelyn Luch was a familiar sight at races and on running trails several years ago when the family's four children began to dominate their age groups.
