A man accused of not reporting the death of a woman he lived with for almost a week pleads guilty this afternoon, and the coroner now reports how that woman died.
37-year-old Samantha Dennis was found dead inside a home in the 1200 block of N. First Ave. December 4. The coroner reports she died due to an accidental drug overdose. She was reportedly living with Larry Harms, Jr.
Authorities say Dennis died November 28, nearly a week before Harms called police only after his father found Dennis dead under a blanket.
Harms now pleads guilty to failure to report a dead body, maintaining a common nuisance, and two possession charges. He will serve 18 months on drug abuse probation.
