CINCINNATI, Ohio — Ohio authorities say an Alabama woman is dead and her husband in custody after both suffered heroin overdoses in the hospital room where their 7-month-old daughter was recovering hours after surgery.

Police say 31-year-old Mary Ann Landers of Trinity, Alabama, was found unconscious Thursday in a room at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. Her 32-year-old husband, Wesley Landers, was unconscious in the bathroom.

Mary Ann Landers died, but her husband was revived and arrested on drug and weapons charges after authorities said they found a loaded gun in his pocket. He appeared in court Friday, where bond was set at $400,000.

Wesley Landers’ attorney did not return a phone call Friday. Tracey Bice was a friend of Mary Ann Landers. She described her as a good mother who didn’t do drugs.
