GREEN, Ohio — A 55-year-old man has been charged in connection with the April drowning of 18-year-old Brandi Morgan.

According to a release from the Summit County Sheriff’s Office, Charles Vlad, of North Canton, faces a charge of underage person offenses. He turned himself in to Barberton Municipal Court.

Police say Morgan was with Vlad at the time of the drowning, which happened in a pond behind Evan’s Supply, 2448 Greensbur Road. Vlad was the one who made the 911 call.

Last week, Morgan’s death was ruled accidental. Hypothermia and ethyl alcohol intoxication were contributing factor in her death.
