BEREA, Ohio — A Berea, Ohio, couple was indicted on child endangerment charges Friday after their 8-year-old son apparently overdosed on heroin, WKYC reported.
Charles Dowdy and Danielle Simko were arraigned Friday morning and are each being held on $150,000 bond.
Their next court appearance is scheduled for 9 a.m. Feb. 22 before Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court Judge Peter Corrigan.
Just before 9:30 p.m. on Jan. 11, Dowdy had noticed his son stopped breathing and his lips were turning blue so he called 911, WKYC reported.
