Two Dillsboro parents are facing child endangerment charges after police in Ohio say they overdosed in front of their kids at a Cincinnati McDonald’s.

33-year-old Tamica Lynn Jeffers and 37-year-old Robert Palmer were at the restaurant on North Bend Road with their children, ages 6 and 8, when they allegedly overdosed on heroin last Sunday.

Jeffers was taken to the hospital after she was found unconscious and not breathing, according to police. Palmer was found conscious but not responsive.

Both pleaded not guilty during a court hearing last week. Police say the couple admitted to taking heroin.

They were lodged in the Hamilton County Jail with Palmer held on $10,000 bond and Jeffers with a $6,000 bond.
