Trial begins for Warren mother whose children were revived after overdose

Posted: Updated:
WARREN, Ohio -

Jury selection begins in the trial of a Warren mother whose two young children had to be revived with Naloxone after swallowing heroin in February. 

Carlisa Davis is indicted on two felony counts of child endangering in connection with the February 2 incident. Carlisa told police she found her 9-month-old and 21-month-old children unconscious on the floor of her Randolph Street NW home.

The two children were rushed to a local hospital where they were given naloxone, before they were taken to Akron Children's Hospital where they were given another dose of the opiate reversal drug.

Trumbull County Common Pleas Judge Wyatt McKay started the jury selection process in the case Monday morning. It's possible medical professionals who handled the children could take the stand, along with Warren Police Detective Nick Carney, who oversaw the investigation into the matter. 

It's not clear how the children gained access to the drug.

Davis is free on $50,000 bond. Her mother, Lisa Davis, was also charged in the case.

She pleaded guilty last week to permitting drug abuse. Her sentencing date has not yet been scheduled.
