David Sowers charged with aggravated murder in the death of his girlfriend

NOTE: This story has been update to correct inaccurate information regarding Sower's release from prison provide by officials.

ZANESVILE - A Zanesville man with a history of criminal activity has been charged with aggravated murder in the death of his 29-year-old girlfriend, Mia Micheli, who was killed early Saturday morning.

According to Zanesville Police Chief Tony Coury, 36-year-old David Sowers was arrested the same day
and is being held on $1 million bond in the city jail on two counts of aggravated murder. One count relates to the fact that Sowers was on parole at the time of Micheli's death.

Around 10:30 a.m. Saturday, the Muskingum County Sheriff's Office was informed of a possible deceased woman at Sowers' home located at 908 Turner St.

One of his family member's had called a crisis center in Cuyahoga County about the matter. The sheriff's office then relayed the information to the Zanesville Police Department.

When officers arrived, they found the door to be locked and individuals gathered outside.

Among those was Sowers' mother, who told police he was at her home on Jane Circle.

Police went to that location and arrested Sowers without any issues.

"When we went out there, we got the door unlocked and he just surrendered to us. No fight, no complaint, no screaming," Coury said.

Later that afternoon, investigators from Zanesville and BCI in London, Ohio were able to gain entry to the home after obtaining a search warrant where they found Micheli lying dead on the living room floor.

Coury said the Licking County Coroner's Office examined Micheli's body and found the cause of her death to be blunt force trauma.

Detectives are not saying what led up to Micheli's death at this time.

Sowers was previously convicted of burglary in Muskingum County after two counts of rape were dismissed and his original count of aggravated burglary was reduced to a second-degree felony.

He was sentenced to five years in prison and was finishing his time on post-release control when he was arrested for Micheli's murder.
