Clarksville Police have made an arrest on murder charges in connection with the August 2011 overdose death of a Montgomery County woman.
A news release says a Montgomery County Grand Jury indicted 49-year old Robert Thomas Ford of Ridgecrest Drive, Clarksville on one count of murder earlier this month.
Ford was arrested around 1am this morning and charged with second degree murder and lodged in the Montgomery County Jail. The investigation began August of last year when 24-year old Ashlee Garner was found dead at a Charlotte Drive residence.
It was determined she had been with Ford and died from a drug and alcohol overdose. Detectives allege Ford provided her with a prescription medication that contributed to her death.
