DAYTON — Montgomery County Prosecutor Mat Heck, Jr., announced Monday that 32‐year‐old Elyssa M. Davis, of Englewood, has been indicted on charges related to the overdose death of 48‐year‐old Kelly L. Vogler, of Butler Township.
On November 2, 2015, a friend of Vogler called 911 after finding him deceased inside his home on Old Springfield Road in Butler Township.
The coroner determined the cause of death to be acute drug intoxication from a mixture of Fentanyl, Alprazolam, and ethanol.
Davis purchased the illegal drug mixture and assisted Vogler with injecting the drugs. Vogler collapsed almost immediately. Davis left Vogler lying on the floor and left the residence without seeking any medical attention for him.
Today, Davis was indicted on:
• One count of Involuntary Manslaughter
• One count of Corrupting Another with Drugs
“Heroin and Fentanyl are insidious drugs and they cause an incredible number of overdose deaths in our community,” Heck said. “When another person provides these drugs that result in an overdose death, it simply compounds the problem. Anyone who sells, gives or provides any illegal drug to another person who then dies from an overdose will be prosecuted and held accountable for the victim’s death. This defendant fled the residence and never even assisted the victim by calling 911.”
Davis is scheduled to be arraigned on March 31 at 8:30 a.m.
