OREM, Utah – The family name "Hacking" has been removed from the gravestone of a woman whose husband has been charged with killing her and dumping her body in a trash bin.
Lori Hacking's (search) family changed the headstone, which now reads "Lori Kay Soares."
Mark Hacking (search) reported in July that his 27-year-old wife had failed to return from an early morning jog, setting off extensive searches by volunteers and police.
He later allegedly admitted to his brothers he shot her as she slept and disposed of her body in a trash bin. He has pleaded innocent to first-degree murder and his trial is set to begin April 18.
Police found Hacking's body Oct. 1 at a landfill they had been searching since her disappearance.
"Hacking" has been replaced on the headstone by the Portuguese word "Filhinha," which translates to "little daughter."
"We just felt that Mark obviously didn't want her anymore," said Lori's mother, Thelma Soares (search).
Mark Hacking's parents were notified of the change and understood, Soares said.
