Funeral services are set Wednesday in Weston for a former Grantsville woman who died suddenly at her residence over the weekend.

The Weston Police Department, in a press release, says the body of Kelli Nicole Stamper-Lawson, age 28, was sent to the WV Medical Examiner's office in Charleston for an autopsy.

Police say 911 received a call at 5:18 a.m. Saturday reporting that a woman was not breathing. Lawson was taken to Stonewall Jackson Memorial Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

There is a discrepancy related to the time of death between the police report and Lawson's obituary.

Lawson's mother, Vicki Butcher Shaver, is a resident of Grantsville.

The Weston Democrat reported, "It is not known if Lawson's death remains under investigation, as the police department press release stated no further information is known at this time."

Lawson had been the object of a domestic assault in May, according to a criminal complaint filed in Gilmer County by the State Police.

Her boyfriend Christopher Todd Smith of Grantsville, was charged with two counts, assault and domestic assault, according to the complaint.

Smith was placed on "a 12-month pre-trial diversion," related to the charges.
