MIAMI COUNTY — A Troy man received jail time this week for a child endangering charge in connection with children being present during an apparent drug overdose death in May of last year.

Danille Saunders, 32, of Troy, was found deceased in a residence on the 2700 block of Huntington Drive in Troy on May 18, 2017. Her body was transported to the Montgomery County Coroner’s Office for an autopsy, as she was believed to have died as the result of a drug overdose.

Three children, ages 4, 6 and 11, were home at the time of the incident. Miami County Children’s Services was contacted, and the children were placed in the custody of a family member.

Her husband, Brian Saunders, 34, of Troy, was arrested and charged with misdemeanor child endangering and possession of drug paraphernalia that day. According to Miami County Municipal Court records, Saunders endangered the youngest child because he knew his wife had used heroin and he left her lying on the kitchen floor. Saunders then went to sleep and left the youngest child unsupervised.

The possession charge was dismissed in Miami County Municipal Court on Wednesday, and Saunders was found guilty of first-degree misdemeanor child endangering. Saunders was sentenced to serve 180 days in jail. He is currently incarcerated in the Miami County Jail.
