Charles E. Hall

One of two men accused of dumping a Middletown woman’s body in a Kettering yard has more felony charges.

Charles E. Hall, 65, was arraigned Monday on two counts of aggravated drug possession. The same day, a March 3, 2018, trial date was set on gross abuse of a corpse and tampering with evidence charges in Montgomery County Common Pleas Judge Gregory Singer’s courtroom.

Hall and David Detrick, 39, allegedly removed the body of 28-year-old Tiffany Argo on May 21 from Hall’s residence to Valleywood Drive, police and prosecutors say. The Middletown woman’s death was ruled an accidental overdose of carfentanil and cocaine, according to the county coroner’s office.

Also Monday, Detrick was ordered to appear Dec. 5 before Singer to schedule appearance and trial dates. He, too, is charged with gross abuse of a corpse and tampering with evidence in connection to Argo.

Both suspects are out on bond.
