Sarasota man wanted for first degree murder in wife's slaying

A 48-year-old Sarasota woman died Saturday after her husband allegedly shot her before turning the gun on himself, according to the Sarasota County Sheriff's Office.

As a result the Sarasota County Sheriff's Office is pursuing a warrant for first degree murder for the husband, a media release said. 

Both Nancy Olms and her husband Frank Olms, 66, were airlifted to Bayfront Medical Center at about 9 p.m. Friday following the shooting at their home in the 50th block of Beverly Circle in Englewood.

Deputies learned of the incident after Frank Olms ran to a neighbor's door to tell her there had been a shooting and to call 911, according to Wendy Rose, public information officer. 

Both husband and wife were bleeding from the head, according to Rose. 

"He does not have a brain injury," Rose said.

The investigation is still ongoing by the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Section.

Anyone with information is encouraged to call the Criminal Investigations Section at 941-861-4900 or leave an anonymous tip with Crime Stoppers by calling 941-366-TIPS (8477), or online at or via text message by texting TIP109 plus a message to CRIMES (274637).
