COLUMBIA— More than 120 people attended a special weekend boot camp held to honor a Columbia woman, whose husband is charged with murdering her and her two teenage daughters.

Karen Kahler and her daughters, Emily and Lauren, were killed last year at a relative's home in Burlingame, Kan. Kahler's husband, 47-year-old Kraig Kahler, former director of the Columbia Water and Light Department, is charged with the murders.

The STOmP Violence Boot Camp in Columbia was held to honor Karen Kahler, a former ARC boot camp instructor.

The Columbia Daily Tribune reported that the two-hour event featured cycling, aerobics and resistance and core training. The event also raised money for True North, a local shelter for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.
