DAYTON — Prosecutor Mat Heck, Jr. announced Wednesday that Elyssa M. Davis, 33, of Englewood, has been found guilty as charged related to the overdose death of 48‐year‐old Kelly L. Vogler, of Butler Township.
On November 2, 2015, a friend of the victim called 911 after finding Vogler 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.
In March 2016, Davis was indicted on one count of Involuntary Manslaughter and one count of Corrupting Another with Drugs.
Wednesday, November 16 she was found guilty as charged on both counts.
“Heroin and Fentanyl are insidious drugs and they cause an incredible number of overdose deaths in our community,” said Prosecutor Heck. “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 will be sentenced on December 8 at 10 a.m.
