Police: Couple ODs in hospital after daughter's surgery

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 just 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 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.

An attorney for Wesley Landers did not return a phone call Friday. A friend of Mary Ann Landers described her as a good mother who didn't do drugs.
