HEROIN-PLAYGROUND
Trial delayed for woman who overdosed at southwest Ohio McDonald's play area

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Monday, April 7, 2014 12:04 PM EDT
CINCINNATI


The trial has been delayed for a woman who police say overdosed on heroin with her boyfriend in a McDonald's play area near Cincinnati.

Thirty-three-year-old Tamica Jeffers' non-jury trial on charges of child endangerment was rescheduled Monday for April 21.

Jeffers' attorney did not immediately return a call for comment Monday.

Her boyfriend, 37-year-old Robert Palmer, was convicted of two misdemeanor charges last month.

Emergency officials responded to a call March 9 about two unresponsive adults in the Green Township fast-food restaurant's indoor play area. They needed emergency treatment to recover from what police called "life-threatening overdoses."

Authorities say the couple, from Dillsboro, Ind., acknowledged using heroin while with two children, a 5-year-old girl and 8-year-old boy.

Palmer is the girl's father; the boy's relationship with the couple is unclear.
