Jury watches police interview with Warren mom

WARREN – The mother of two small children who ingested heroin admitted to a police detective on Feb. 2 that she knew drugs were being sold out of the Randolph Street home in which she and her family lived.

The video of defendant Carlisa Davis’ interview with Warren police detective Nicholas Carney was played Wednesday afternoon for the Trumbull County jury deciding her fate on charges of endangering children. The trial in Common Pleas Judge W. Wyatt McKay’s courtroom is to continue Thursday morning with the defense’s cross-examination of Carney, the lead investigator in the case.

If found guilty of the felony charges, Davis, 19, could face a maximum of six years in prison.

Assistant Prosecutor Diane Barber played the hourlong video of the interview, which was conducted shortly after Davis’ children – 21-month-old Danae Davis and 9-month-old Cayden Perry – had to be revived with the narcotic antidote Naloxone at Trumbull Memorial Hospital Feb. 2 after they ingested heroin at their Randolph Street home.
