YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - A Youngstown man is found not guilty on Wednesday on charges of abusing a corpse and tampering with evidence.
Closing arguments in the trial against Robert Tovarnak, 47, resulted in a quick verdict from the jury on the case.
Two others were charged in the events following the death of 47-year-old William Lewis.
Co-defendent David Jenkins, 42, still faces the same charges and will appear in court at a later date. Charges were dropped against a juvenile in the case.
Lewis was found in a car on the city's South Side three days after he died from a drug overdose earlier this year.
His body was moved from Jenkins' home after the overdose.
It's believed a saltwater solution and a cleaning fluid was poured in the victim's mouth after he died.
