Two men are facing second-degree murder charges in connection with separate Nashville fentanyl overdose deaths last year, police said.

Blake Warrick and Timothy A. Davis Jr. were both indicted on charges of second-degree murder, Metro Nashville Police said Thursday.

Warrick was indicted by a Davidson County Grand Jury in connection with the June 2021 death of 44-year-old Stacy Lee Henson.

Henson was leaving Warrick's home where he'd just bought two pills when he crashed his car on Owendale Drive, police said. Police called the car crash minor. Investigators later found fentanyl in Henson's system.

Upon Warrick's arrest Wednesday afternoon, officers found 200 fentanyl pills, a gun and over $67,000 in cash. He was charged with possession of fentanyl for resale and felony gun possession.

Davis was indicted by a Sumner County grand jury in connection with the December death of 41-year-old Christopher Todd Ellis.

Ellis allegedly bought drugs from Davis in Hendersonville before driving to Cedar Hill Park in Madison where he was later found dead of an overdose.

Officers searched Ellis' Sumner County home in March and found fentanyl, methamphetamine and about $675 in cash.
