A man has been charged in the death of a local woman found in front of a home and he's expected to be arraigned sometime Friday afternoon.

Bradley Traxler, 49, of Saginaw, is charged with giving a controlled substance to 50-year-old Darlene Sue Kozak, of Linwood, which killed her last August.

Kozak was found wrapped in a blanket in the driveway of a home on Warren near Hoyt in Saginaw.

According to The Saginaw News, Traxler is currently behind bars in the St. Louis Correctional Facility for a parole violation sentence. If convicted on the delivering a controlled substance causing death charge, Traxler could be sentenced to up to life in prison.
