COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Central Ohio sheriff's deputies say two men dumped a female companion's body in a ditch near a cornfield after she died from an apparent heroin overdose.
The Franklin County Sheriff's Office says 24-year-old Corey Roberts and 22-year-old Nicholas McCord were arrested Monday and charged with abuse of a corpse. Jail records didn't say if they had attorneys yet.
A sheriff's report said the two men met up with 21-year-old Jordyn Hollingsworth Friday and began using heroin at McCord's apartment west of Columbus. At some point during the night, Hollingsworth had trouble breathing and was unresponsive, but the two men went to bed instead of calling 911.
The sheriff's office says that when the men awoke, they took Hollingsworth's dead body and dumped it.
Additional charges are possible.
