The Indiana Township house where a woman fatally shot a federal agent during a drug raid will be sold at auction.

The Allegheny County civil court scheduled a sheriff's sale of the Woods Run Road property where Christina Korbe shot FBI Special Agent Samuel Hicks on Nov. 19, 2008, as he and other law enforcement officers attempted to arrest her husband, Robert Korbe, on drug charges. Hicks was a graduate of Southmoreland High School.

The auction is scheduled for March 4 in the Allegheny County Courthouse, Downtown. JPMorgan Chase Bank seeks to recoup nearly $280,000 in principal, interest and fees. The property will be sold to the highest bidder.

Christina Korbe, 44, pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter and using a firearm during a violent crime. She is serving 15 years, 10 months in a Hazelton, W.Va., federal prison.

Robert Korbe, 43, pleaded guilty to gun, drug and mail fraud charges and is serving 25 years in a federal prison in Salters, S.C.

Court documents state JPMorgan Chase granted the Korbes a mortgage in June 2007 for 111 Woods Run Road and that payments stopped in January 2009, five weeks after the shooting.
