HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) — Police say a 5-year-old girl was revived with naloxone after she overdosed on methadone in the western Maryland city of Hagerstown.
Court documents show that the child’s mother, 31-year-old Jeanie White, and aunt, 35-year-old Tracy Bolinger, have been charged with child neglect, reckless endangerment and contributing to the condition of a child.
Neither woman has an attorney listed in court records. Bolinger did not immediately return a call to her home Thursday. Court records say White is homeless.
Methadone is prescribed as a substitute for other narcotics during addiction treatment.
