Phelps overdose leads to manslaughter charge

A Gorham man was indicted by an Ontario County grand jury with an additional charge of manslaughter after previously having been charged with two counts of criminal sale of a controlled substance.

On Tuesday in Ontario County Court, Donald Everson, 29, appeared in front of Judge Brian Dennis as the new charge of second-degree manslaughter was unsealed after a fatal Oct. 30 overdose in Phelps.



Defense attorney Jason Housel entered a not guilty plea on his client's behalf.

According to Ontario County District Attorney James Ritts, there were two overdoses at the Phelps location on Halloween, one of which was fatal.
