March in Charlotte to honor woman killed by husband in Lincoln Co.

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

A march is being held in uptown Charlotte on Thursday to honor a woman who was killed by her husband two weeks ago in Lincoln County.

Thirty-nine-year-old Tara Lynn Osborne was killed on March 28 by her husband at their home along the 800 block of Salem Church Road. Officers found her body at a side door to the home.

Osborne's estranged husband, 40-year-old Anthony Ray Osborne, was found driving in circles around a nearby apartment complex.

When an officer attempted to stop him, Osborne parked his truck in a parking space and opened fire on the officer. That officer returned fire and Osborne ran to his apartment at nearby Lantern Ridge Apartments.

Police say that during those negotiations, Osborne admitted to shooting his wife and, at one point, refused to negotiate further, telling officers, "Give me five minutes and you can come in and get my dead body."

After negotiating for more than two hours, the SWAT team used tear gas to force him out. He came out of the apartment and opened fire again at the officers and was fatally shot.

According to the North Carolina Coalition Against Domestic Violence, this is the 13th domestic violence-related homicide this year in the state.

The march will take place from 12:15 p.m. to 1 p.m. - on the square at Trade and Tryon Streets in Charlotte.

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