Woman Arrested For Abandoning a Corpse

A Columbia woman was arrested in Montgomery County around 9:00 last night on suspicion of abandoning a corpse.

Fifty five year old Deborah Berardi’s arrest was in relation to the discovery of the body of 60 year old Steven Summa on Monday in the 2900 block of Leeway Drive.


An autopsy on Summa did not indicate foul play.

She is being held on a 20 thousand dollar bond, and is scheduled to appear in court tomorrow.

The investigation is ongoing.
