Summit County woman arrested in connection with two heroin overdoses

COVENTRY TWP., Ohio - A Coventry Township woman has been charged in connection with two heroin-related deaths years apart.

The first came in September 2009, when Richard Davis was found dead in his Coventry Township home as a result of a heroin overdose. After investigating, authorities discovered 29-year-old Danielle Hoover was present prior to or during Davis' death.

Then again, in December 2012, sheriff's detectives found Hoover was with Ronald Harmon, another heroin overdose victim, at Steve's Motel in the City of Green, before or during his death.

Detectives discovered similarities between manner of death, source of narcotics and Hoover's actions during and after the incidents in both cases.

Hoover was charged Friday with two counts of involuntary manslaughter, two counts of corrupting another with drugs and tampering with evidence.

She has been booked into Summit County Jail.
