A Dillsboro woman accused of overdosing on heroin with her husband at a McDonald’s in Ohio is scheduled to appear in court Monday.
33-year-old Tamica Jeffers is facing child endangerment charges in Hamilton County which stem from an incident March 9.
Her trial follows the conviction of her husband, 37-year-old Robert Palmer on March 28. He was found guilty of child endangerment and sentencing is scheduled for next Monday.
Police say Jeffers and Palmer 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.
