Update: Two Men Facing Manslaughter Charges After Death Investigation

The Lancaster County Sheriff's Office blames drugs for the death of a 44-year-old woman. Two men are now facing manslaughter charges.

Sheriff Terry Wagner says Michelle Kover was found in a bedroom of her home near SW 58th and West Sprague road May 2, after a friend picked up her kids from school.

Deputies arrived to find Kover unresponsive. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

The autopsy findings showed that Kover died from the toxic effects of methamphetamine. Deputies say they also found suspected meth in her home.

Deputies arrested 32-year-old Peter Dudek for possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, conspiracy to deliver a controlled substance and manslaughter.

Forty-nine-year-old Scott Squires turned himself in and was arrested for felony driving under suspension, possession of a controlled substance, conspiracy to deliver a controlled substance, felony child abuse and manslaughter.

Squires is also facing a felony child abuse charge after he asked a 9-year-old to remove a pipe from the scene.

Deputies say all of the charges for Dudek and Squires relate to the death investigation of Michelle Kover.

Deputies say the father of the children was not home at time of the incident.

The investigation is ongoing.
