Funeral arrangements have been set for a Russell County woman slain while jogging on Thursday.

Services for Sarah B. Hart, 31, of Jamestown, will be held at 10 a.m. Monday at Freedom Christian Church Family Life Center in Jamestown. Visitation will begin at 4 p.m. Sunday at the church. Bernard Funeral Home in Russell Springs is in charge of arrangements.

Mrs. Hart was a pharmacist, and her husband, Ryan Hart, is as well.

She is also survived by her children, Avery, Addison and Archer Hart, and her parents, Wendell and Cindy Roberts of Jamestown.

Mrs. Hart, who was 10 to 11 weeks pregnant with her fourth child, had been out for a run with her sister along U.S. 127 early Thursday when she decided to turn back toward where her car was parked because she didn't feel well.

Her body was found later that day in a tree line 20 to 30 yards from the road. She had been strangled, according to the Russell County coroner.

Christopher Allman, 28, has been charged with murder, first-degree robbery, kidnapping and tampering with physical evidence in the case. He is being held without bond at the Russell County Detention Center,
