Austintown mom found overdosed is back in jail

BOARDMAN TWP., Ohio -

Looking quite different than she did a-year-and-a-half ago, a mother of three who was arrested last year after her son found her overdosed on the bathroom floor of her Austintown home, is back in the county jail.

Forty-two-year-old Jennifer Kellish of Carnegie Avenue was arrested by Boardman Township Police early Thursday on a warrant issued by Boardman Court last month.

According to records from the county court, Kellish is charged with escape, resisting arrest, obstructing official business, as well as possession of drug abuse instruments and drug paraphernalia.

It's not the woman's first brush with the law.

In April of last year, Kellish's son, who was nine-years-old at the time, ran to a neighbor's home saying he found his mother passed out on the bathroom floor.

EMTs, who told police that they administered two doses of the opiate overdose reversal drug Narcan to Kellish, said they found a hypodermic syringe and burnt spoon with heroin residue underneath Kellish.

The EMTs also told officers that Kellish admitted to them that she had used heroin.

Police say they found three hypodermic syringes and a crack pipe in Kellish's purse.

The police report also says officers found a bottle of Guinness, a can of Mike's Orange Soda still containing alcohol, and a bottle of multi-purpose cleaner in the kitchen.

Police say all of the items were within the reach of Kellish's children, ages nine, five and two at the time.

Kellish pleaded guilty to a charge of inducing panic. Three counts of child endangering were dismissed.

She was sentenced to 90 days in jail and placed on probation for a year.

In 2014, Kellish was arrested by Beaver Township Police on a charge of possessing drug abuse instruments. She was convicted of disorderly conduct and given a suspended 30-day jail sentence.
