WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – The owner of a house in Warren, a former attorney who has been in trouble with the law before, was issued a summons after four overdoses happened at the house.
Officers were called just after 9 p.m. Monday to the house in the 100 block of Genesee Ave. NE on reports of an overdose. The person was taken to Trumbull Regional Medical Center.
Police said the call history for the house showed four overdoses there in the past three months.
The homeowner, Maridee Costanzo, 64, was issued a summons on a charge of permitting drug abuse in her home.
Costanzo failed to appear at her arraignment on Tuesday, and a warrant was issued for her arrest.
Costanzo is a former Trumbull County attorney who had her license revoked in 2005 when she was convicted of trying to have her husband killed.
She was also accused in 2017 of being part of a theft ring spanning three counties. She pleaded guilty to receiving stolen property and was sentenced to two years in a corrections program, with 120 days of residential confinement. She also was credited with 25 days of time served.
