Man Charged with Drug, Weapon Crimes Faces Additional Charges in Grand Traverse Co.

A man connected to an overdose death in Grand Traverse County will learn his punishment Friday.

Police arrested Jeremiah Medina in February after 19-year-old Rachel Ovalle was found dead.

They say Medina rented hotel rooms in Traverse City using Ovalle’s credit card and they found drugs and a gun in one of the rooms.

Last month, Medina took a plea deal admitting to having cocaine and a gun and illegally using a credit card.

His mother Melissa and sister Xena were also arrested in May on charges of dealing heroin.
