- ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - The murder trial of Robert Luch continues in Superior Court in Anchorage. Luch's lawyer said Wednesday that his client was, "psychologically weak" and "snapped" before he shot and killed Jocelyn Luch on Sept. 28, 2010. The 40-year-old woman was shot three times at the couple's home. They had been married more than 20 years and had four children. Robert Luch, who is 64, suspected his wife was having an affair. Defense lawyer Andrew Lambert said he confronted his wife one evening after failing to find her at Kincaid Park where she was running a race, and shot her with a gun he had bought for protection 11 days earlier. Prosecutors say Luch planned the killing, thinking if he couldn't have his wife, no one would.
