Woman Killed in Home She Shared With Suspect

Indra Sheets was shot to death in the Montgomery County home she shared with Stanley Laing. Police think he shot her with a semi-automatic pistol and fled the Cheltenham Township home on Sunnybrook Avenue.

Police found Sheets' body inside the home Thursday around 5:20 p.m. The 49-year-old woman had been shot twice in what investigators called a domestic-related homicide.

Laing, 52, drove away in a white vehicle, possibly a Ford Escape. The Pennsylvania license plate is DVZ-1159. Laing is described as a muscular black man, 6-feet tall with short gray hair and a full beard. He was last seen wearing a red plaid jacket, pants and black boots.

Neighbors described the couple as friendly and told the Bucks County Courier Times that Laing and Sheets lived in the home with two children.

Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman charged Laing with 1st Degree Murder and related offense.

Laing is considered armed and dangerous. If you have any information of his whereabouts, please call 911, the Cheltenham Township Police Department at 215-885-1600 or the Montgomery County Detective Bureau at 610-278-3368.
