Akron man sentenced to 21 years in prison in connection with fentanyl death

Summit County Prosecutor Sherri Bevan Walsh announced today that Kevin Ecker, 30, of Baughman St. in Akron, was sentenced to 21 years in prison in connection with the drug-related death of 20-year-old Jessica Canada Holmes, as well as other drug offenses.

On June 16, a Summit County jury found Ecker guilty of the following charges:

• Involuntary Manslaughter – a felony of the first degree
• Corrupting Another with Drugs – a felony of the second degree
• Two Counts of Aggravated Trafficking in Drugs (Fentanyl) – felonies of the third degree
• Aggravated Trafficking in Drugs (Methamphetamine) – a felony of the second degree
• Aggravated Trafficking in Drugs (Fentanyl) – a felony of the fourth degree
• Two Counts of Trafficking in Marijuana – felonies of the fourth degree
• Aggravated Possession of Drugs (Methamphetamine) – a felony of the second degree
• Aggravated Possession of Drugs (Fentanyl) – a felony of the fifth degree
• Possession of Cocaine – a felony of the fifth degree
• Two Counts of Possession of Drugs – felonies of the fifth degree

“Heroin, fentanyl, and now carfentanil, have left a trail of death in our community. Kevin Ecker, and drug dealers like him, must be held accountable for preying on people caught in the grips of addiction,” said Prosecutor Walsh. “As we search for solutions to this health crisis, my office will continue to fight for victims and their families who are battling with this crippling addiction.”

On March 22, 2015, Holmes purchased what she thought was heroin. Holmes was later found dead in her Kenmore Ave. home. The Summit County Medical Examiner determined Holmes died after ingesting fentanyl and not heroin. Investigators traced the drug back to Ecker.

The other guilty verdicts are related to multiple incidents involving Ecker from March 2015 and February 2016.

Ecker’s case was the first involuntary manslaughter case in Summit County involving heroin or fentanyl to be decided by a jury trial. Since 2013, 22 defendants in Summit County Common Pleas Court have been convicted of involuntary manslaughter charges connected to heroin or fentanyl deaths.
