(MAYFIELD HEIGHTS) - A former athletic trainer at the Mayfield City Schools who was facing multiple felony charges, is dead.

A report from the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner's Office says 43-year-old Dean Ochi was found dead Thursday morning in Mayfield Heights outside Miklus Florist on SOM Center Road.

Ochi had been indicted on 14 felony counts, including 10 felony counts of sexual battery, one count of disseminating material harmful to a minor and three counts of illegal use of a minor in nudity-oriented material.

The school district became aware of the allegations in April between Ochi and a Mayfield High School female student.

His death is under investigation.
