Former University of Kansas football goalie killed, husband charged with murder

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — A former University of Kansas football goalie has been killed and her husband has been charged with first-degree murder in her death, police said.

Officers found Regan Noelle Gibbs, 25, fatally injured Monday night in her apartment in Lawrence, Kansas. Police say her husband, Chad Joseph Marek, 26, called 911 and was arrested at the scene.

Police said Gibbs’ murder was likely the result of domestic abuse, but declined to say on Wednesday how she was killed.

Gibbs served as a goaltender for the Jayhawks football program from 2015 to 2018. She was a native of Naches, Wash., and a member of two NCAA tournament teams during her Kansas career, according to the Department of college athletics.
