Authorities say Palmer and Jeffers overdosed on heroin at an Ohio McDonalds.

A Dillsboro man who allegedly overdosed on heroin along with his wife in the play area of an Ohio McDonalds on March 9, has been convicted of child endangerment. Robert Palmer, 37, was found guilty in a Hamilton County, Ohio court Thursday.

Police say Palmer and his wife, 33-year-old Tamica Jeffers, were found unresponsive in the restaurant and needed life-threatening treatment while their two children, a 5-year-old girl and 8-year-old boy, were with them.

Authorities claim the couple admitted to using heroin.

Sentencing will be held April 14. Trial for Jeffers is still pending.
