LONGVILLE, LA (KPLC) -

Randall Langley, 51, has been booked in the Beauregard Parish Jail on a second-degree murder charge in the death of his wife, 44-year-old Sherry Lynn Langley, according to Beauregard Parish Sheriff's Office Chief Deputy Joe Toler. 

Toler said Langley was transported to Beauregard Parish on Monday morning after staying overnight for observation at Christus St. Patrick Hospital in Lake Charles following a single-vehicle accident in Merryville on Sunday after the shooting.

Randall Langley is being held on a $1,750,000 bond.

Toler said the shooting happened around 1:18 p.m. Sunday.

Toler said the 911 call was made from the Langley home. The caller, he said, was the Langleys' daughter.

Toler said when deputies arrived, Sherry Langley was dead at the scene.

"Langley died as a result of gunshot wounds to the upper torso and head," Toler said.

Randall Langley fled the scene, Toler said, but was involved in a single-vehicle accident near Neale Oilfield Road in Merryville later Sunday.

"Upon arrival, a pick up truck was found fully engulfed in flames. It was also reported that a man found at the scene could possibly be Langley. The man was taken by helicopter to a hospital in Lake Charles where it was met by a Lake Charles police officer who confirmed that the man was Randall Langley," Toler said.

Randall Langley was treated before being released into the custody of Beauregard authorities.

Sherry Langley was an employee at South Beauregard Upper Elementary School. On Monday, Beauregard school superintendent, Tim Cooley, released a statement on her death.

"The employees of the Beauregard Parish School Board are deeply saddened by the loss of a dear co-worker. Ms. Langley had faithfully served the South Beauregard community as a school support employee for the past 11 years. We offer our condolences to the family members, colleagues and schools of the South Beauregard community," Cooley said.
