An autopsy was performed Wednesday, but no results were released, according to Martin Schneider, coroner’s office administrator.
Maj. Leanne Hood said the 911 call couldn’t be released to the media because there are things on call that are “detrimental” to the ongoing investigation.
Slaton was charged Tuesday night with gross abuse of a corpse, failure to report a crime or death and tampering with evidence, police said. More charges are possible once the autopsy is complete and the case is reviewed by the Butler County Prosecutor’s Office, Reeve said.
Slaton appeared for his arraignment Wednesday morning in Middletown Municipal Court and Judge James Sherron set Slaton’s cash, surety or property bond at $210,000. He remained in the City Jail Wednesday night, according to records.
His arraignment was continued until July 8 and he was appointed attorney Morgan Kohler, according to records.
Slaton has 14 prior charges in Middletown, including robbery, intoxication, domestic violence and breaking and entering, according to court documents.
