Allegheny County, PA — A woman who was arrested after her two young sons overdosed on prescription medication at school apparently told police she “didn’t want the kids anyway.”
Samantha Brown is facing multiple charges in connection with the alleged incident.
Authorities claim the 27-year-old woman gave her two sons, ages 8 and 9, Klonopin before sending them off to school Wednesday morning.
The younger boy was later found unresponsive on the floor, foaming at the mouth in a puddle of vomit. The older boy was found dazed and foaming at the mouth.
Both were treated UPMC’s Children’s Hospital. No word on their condition.
The boys told investigators their mother made them take the pills, and Brown had the pills on her when police questioned her.
She’s been ordered held on $50,000 bail.Tags: Allegheny County, Child Abuse, Klonopin, overdose, Samantha Brown
