Lincoln police report 66-year-old Jeanne Jasa died in the burn unit of CHI St. Elizabeth Hospital Tuesday afternoon of injuries sustained in the explosion at 5601 South 78th Street August 14th.
Her husband, 66-year-old Jim Jasa, remains in critical condition in the burn unit at St. Elizabeth.
Both had been placed in medically induced comas during treatment.
