A Kent woman has been indicted on charges of child endangering and permitting drug abuse in connection to the arrest of a Willow Street man on similar charges.
Melissa A. Chapman, 40, of 527 N. Willow St., was indicted by the Portage County grand jury on one count of permitting drug abuse, a fifth-degree felony, and one count of endangering children, a first-degree misdemeanor.
The endangering children charge stems from Chapman being the parent or guardian of four children, all under the age of 18, according to the indictment, which was filed Aug. 26.
Chapman lives at the same address where the Portage County Drug Task Force arrested Charles Stehney in June on multiple drug-related charges. Stehney has since also been indicted.
Chapman was arraigned in court today on the charges.
