Police: Husband shot wife 7 times on way to photoshoot

Updated: Nov 9, 2023

Suspect claims the shooting was in self-defense

(LAWRENCEBURG, Ind.) -- The Dearborn County Prosecutors Office released new details Wednesday regarding the alleged shooting of a wife by her husband.

40-year-old Stacy Mondal, of Bright, sustained fatal injuries on Monday after the shooting happened inside a car the family was traveling in near Lawrenceburg.

Her husband, Mohammed Mondal, 45, was charged with Murder and Neglect of a Dependent on Wednesday.

Prosecutors have revealed that Stacy was shot seven times inside the vehicle, in front of two of their five kids who were also in the car.

"The couple was on their way to an appointment to have photos taken of their two youngest children, ages 14 months and 2 months," Dearborn County Prosecutor Lynn Deddens said.

Police say Mohammed Mondal called his neighbor who is a Dearborn County deputy around 11:50 a.m. Monday.

The deputy said Mondal first said he accidently shot his wife, but then later said it was self defense.

Police escorted Mondal's vehicle to St. Elizabeth Dearborn Hospital where Stacy was pronounced dead around 12:15 p.m.

According to the police affidavit, Mondal claimed the couple was having marital problems and he believed that she was having an affair.

Mondal told detectives there was an argument while driving, and she allegedly threw a cell phone at him. He claimed that she then reached for a gun in the center console, and that Mondal grabbed the gun and shot her.

"Mondal then stated for the first time that Stacy pointed the gun at him before he shot her," Dearborn County Detective Jack Stevens said.

The detective added that they found no evidence that Stacy fired a gun in the vehicle.

Mohammed Mondal is in custody and is scheduled to make an initial hearing Thursday morning in Dearborn County.

Community members have launched fundraisers for the family and a vigil is planned at All Saints Parish in Bright at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday.
