DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Even if there were charges in a criminal case it might be hard to find the owners of those dogs.
According to the Montgomery County Court Docket, Andrew Nason and Julie Custer are no where to be found. The administer of the estate of Klonda Richey filed a wrongful death civil lawsuit in May against them.
Court records say for months, they have been trying to serve the complaint to the couple without success. 2 NEWS Investigates talked to the attorney representing Richey’s administrator Thursday.
He said the next step is a summons publication in the local paper. If Nason and Custer don’t respond to that in the allotted time, a default judgment can be issued. That means the judge could order Nason and Custer to pay the more than $25,000 the suit is demanding just because they didn’t respond to the summons.
