(WKBN) — SMITH TOWNSHIP, OHIO — After a 1-year-old girl was treated for a fentanyl overdose last week, a Mahoning County couple was arrested on child endangerment charges.
Corey Douglas, 32, and Elizabeth Warner, 26, were arrested Friday on Mahoning County Area Court warrants for endangering children, a third-degree felony.
According to a police report, the charges were filed after the pair took the girl to the township police station around 12:35 a.m. Thursday because they suspected she was overdosing.
‘The justice system killed his spirit,’ says a Pennsylvania man charged in a Capitol riot.
According to reports, the girl, Warner’s daughter, had blue lips and a faint pulse when she was checked by a township police officer, who also gave her the opiate antidote naloxone.
The girl was taken to Alliance Aultman Hospital by paramedics. The girl was later transferred to Akron Children’s Hospital’s main campus.
According to reports, Douglas and Warner told police that they believed the girl had obtained an old bottle of pain relievers prescribed when Warner had a tooth extracted.
According to reports, the couple was staying in an RV in the 12000 block of Johnson Road and stated that they had recently moved and that the bottle may have gotten mixed up with other items or dropped during the move. However, the hospital informed police early Friday that a blood test revealed the girl had fentanyl in her system, according to reports.
After receiving that report, police obtained arrest warrants for the couple.
