Man and woman charged in death of Dalton woman

Posted: Updated:
Calhoun Police have charged two people, David Bastin and Francis Leming, in the death of 24-year-old Haley Stanley of Dalton.

Stanley was found Wednesday, June 11th inside her vehicle parked near the VFW on East Line Street.  She was pronounced dead at the scene, and her body was transported to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation Crime Lab in DeKalb, GA.
 
Both suspects have been charged, each with one count each of involuntary manslaughter and one count of reckless conduct.

“It appears the suspects drove the victim to the location where she was discovered and left her without any regard for her safety or well-being.  Based on information we received during our investigation we do not believe the suspects directly caused the death of Miss Stanley however we do believe the victim was still alive and in obvious distress when she was abandon[ed] by the suspects,” said Calhoun Police Department Lt. Tony Pyle in a news release.

Bastin is in custody in the Gordon County Jail; Leming is still being sought by Calhoun Police at (706) 629-1234.
