A man and woman were arrested after two overdoses – one fatal – occurred at a Wyoming County home where four children were present, state police in Warsaw said Wednesday.

At about 5:23 a.m. Sept. 7, Wyoming County 911 dispatched troopers to Wyoming Road in the Town of Covington to attend to an unresponsive male.

They found one man dead from an apparent drug overdose and a second man, Donald F. Reinhart, 38, suffering from an apparent drug overdose, police said. Reinhart was transported to Wyoming County Community Hospital. Also at the house were Amanda S. Reinhart, 34, and the children, ages 5 to 16.

The Reinharts were charged with four misdemeanor counts of endangering the welfare of a child and second-degree criminal nuisance, also a misdemeanor. They were processed and released.
