Agoura Hills Man, 19, Charged With Involuntary Manslaughter In Death Of NFL Player’s Son
LOS ANGELES (CBS) — An Agoura Hills man was charged Thursday with involuntary manslaughter in the drug-overdose death of the 18-year-old son of retired NFL quarterback Erik Kramer.
David Michael Nernberg, 19, is charged with the felony count, stemming from Griffen Kramer’s Oct. 30, 2011, death.
The teenager was found unresponsive in a friend’s bedroom in Agoura Hills, authorities said.
A second man, Corey Robert Baumann, 19, of Agoura Hills, is charged with one count each of possession for sale of methamphetamine, heroin, Ecstasy and marijuana.
Both men pleaded not guilty. They are due back at the Airport Branch Courthouse on March 1, when a date is scheduled to be set for a hearing to determine if there is enough evidence to require them to stand trial, according to Shiara Davila-Morales of the District Attorney’s Office.
Griffen Kramer — a quarterback at Thousand Oaks High School — died from a heroin overdose, according to the coroner’s office.
His father played in the NFL from 1987 to 1999, ending his career with the San Diego Chargers.
