Tues. 10 pm: Jury looks at video, hears from doctor

WARREN – A video of the scene at a Randolph Street home Feb. 2 after two small children ingested heroin was played for a Trumbull County jury Tuesday in the trial of the mother who faces child endangering charges.

Earlier in the day, a jury of six women and six men were seated in the courtroom of Common Pleas Judge W. Wyatt McKay in the case against 19-year-old Carlisa Davis. Davis, who was dressed in black and white, kept her head down throughout most of Tuesday’s proceedings, which included opening arguments from assistant prosecutor Diane Barber and defense attorney Michael Scala.

The trial is expected to continue through the week, McKay said. After the openings, Barber  called five people to the stand – three Warren police officers and two health care workers. The state is expected to continue its case Wednesday afternoon when the trial resumes.
