Homicide on Pueblo Drive

-A A +A
By Carol A. Clark

A woman was shot at least twice in the chest early Monday evening inside her Denver Steel home at 3459 Pueblo Drive. Los Alamos firefighters transported Robin Markham to Los Alamos Medical Center shortly after 6 p.m. where she was pronounced dead.

Police arrested the woman’s husband, Jack Markham, 55, at the home, according to documents filed in First District Court. He is charged with an open count of murder, which if convicted, could result in the death penalty.

“On the surface this looks like a single tragedy in that a woman was shot and killed,” LAPD Capt. Randy Foster said. “But the truth is this incident is tragic and has a profound impact on multiple people – family members, neighbors and friends, the dispatchers who took the call, the police who responded to the scene, the firefighters who came to render aid and for hospital personnel.”

According to court documents, a call was placed to 911 dispatch at 6:02 p.m. from a man who identified himself as Jack Markham. He told the dispatcher he shot his wife with a 9mm handgun. He admitted the couple had been having problems and that his wife had moved out of the home a week and a half ago, according to court reports.
