Charges are expected this week against the hunter who police say shot and killed 43-year-old Rosemary Billquist, mistaking her for a deer.

The incident happened just after sundown on Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving.

It's hard for Jamie Billquist, Rosemary's husband to believe his soulmate of 27 years is gone.

"She loved life. There wasn't a bad bone in her body," he said. "I would have never imagined this would happen to such a great person."

Billquist says his wife was a selfless person, who gave of her life to others.

"She wouold give her shirt off her back. She would volunteer for Hospice and at local nursing homes."

Calling hours are Tuesday beginning at 2-4 at the Spitzer Funeral Home in Sherman.
