WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. -- A man is facing homicide charges after police say he killed his wife in Lycoming County.

According to police, Edward Heck killed his wife, Sonja Heck, at their home in Williamsport.

Police say Emily Rowe, Sonja's daughter, received an unusual text message from her step-father, Edward, on Thursday.

Rowe was not concerned until she received a phone call from her mother's employer on Friday saying she never showed up for work.

Officials say Rowe then went to check on her mother and found her body.

Williamsport police then worked with police in Indiana to take Edward Heck into custody.

Heck will be extradited back to Pennsylvania where he will face homicide charges.

    My daughter worked with the Sonya bother her and my daughter work as a nurse she said that the husband and wife just moved to Williamsport not long ago from Exeter. No the wife was not cheating and the crazy husband found out. From what the women’s daughter told my daughter her step dad stopped his meds. The step dad told the step daughter not to come over because he and her mom are sick. After a few times talking to her dad feeling things don’t seem right and Sonya not showing up for work. The daughter went to see if mom was okay. Step dad gone.

      Pent up frustration over the rain ruined all the good shooting days lately. I’m guessing their bullets were too soggy.
