TWINSBURG — A Solon woman has pleaded guilty in connection with the 2017 drug overdose death of a Twinsburg man.
According to Stow Municipal Court records, 28-year-old Nikolina Sabljic pleaded guilty Oct. 3 to first-degree felony involuntary manslaughter and fourth-degree felony aggravated trafficking in drugs as part of a plea deal during an Oct. 3 status hearing.
As part of a plea deal, other charges in a grand jury indictment, including second-degree felony corrupting another with drugs and an additional fourth-degree felony aggravated trafficking in drugs, were dismissed.
Judge Tammy O’Brien is scheduled to sentence Sabljic on Dec. 19 at 2 p.m.
Twinsburg police say they responded to 40-year-old Richard Davis’ Belleau Drive residence after another resident of the home called 911 to report that Davis was lying on a bathroom floor unresponsive on Oct. 21, 2017. Complaints that police filed with Stow Municipal Court this past February say that Sabljic sold Davis the carfentanil that was determined to have caused his death.
With the help of Macedonia police, Sabljic was arrested during a Feb. 19 traffic stop on Interstate 271 in Macedonia.
Sabljic is free on a 10 percent of $20,000 bond and ordered to submit to electronically monitored house arrest.
Kirk Migdal, Sabljic’s attorney, declined to comment.
