HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) - A man and woman have been arrested and charged with neglect and drug charges after police say they overdosed on heroin in the presence of their three children.

West Virginia State Trooper W.G. Hash tells local media that 37-year-old Stephen E. Woodard was hospitalized and 32-year-old Misty Lee McGlothlin refused treatment Monday for drug overdoses. Hash says Woodard’s 2-year-old daughter found Woodard and McGlothlin shortly after they had overdosed. Her crying alerted McGlothlin’s 8-year-old and 10-year-old children, who got the attention of neighbors.

Woodard and McGlothlin were each charged with three counts of felony child neglect and misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance. Police took Woodard into custody Tuesday after he was released from a local hospital.

All of the children were taken into custody by Child Protective Services.
