Attorney Appointed for Woman Charged with Murder in Overdose Case

A Sumner County judge appointed an attorney to represent a woman charged with second-degree murder in connection to her ex-boyfriend’s fatal overdose.

Chelsey Ann Davis, 28, is charged with murder in the death of Brandon Kyle McDuffee. The Sumner County grand jury indictment was filed Oct. 10.

Judge Dee David Gay appointed local attorney Cindy Templeton to represent Davis at her arraignment Tuesday morning.

Davis is due back in court for a settlement hearing on Jan. 16.

McDuffee died June 20 of fentanyl toxicity after an apparent drug overdose. Gallatin Police Department Investigator Katie Hope previously told The Tennessean that McDuffee, 32, was alone when he was discovered dead of an apparent overdose. Though Hope said she could not release much information — and declined to release the incident report, citing the ongoing investigation — she said an “extremely thorough investigation” led authorities to believe Davis was with McDuffee prior to his death, leading to her second-degree murder charge.
