Marek called police and said he had killed his wife, WDAF-TV reports. Lawrence Police Chief Rich Lockhart told WDAF, "He told us that God told him to do it."
Gibbs’ husband was arrested at the scene on a charge of suspicion of murder, police say. The Lawrence Police Department has prepared an affidavit that has been sent to the Douglas County District Attorney’s Office for review.
The victim was reportedly a soccer goalie for the University of Kansas and played in 2019. She and Marek got married last November, according to WDAF.
Marek is reportedly scheduled to appear in court May 24. He remains held on $1 million bond.
