Thirty-three-year-old Tamica Jeffers’ non-jury trial on charges of child endangerment was rescheduled Monday for April 21.

Her boyfriend, Robert Palmer, 37, was convicted of two misdemeanor charges last month. Emergency officials responded to a call March 9 about two unresponsive adults in the Green Township fast-food restaurant’s indoor play area.

They needed emergency treatment to recover from what police called “life-threatening overdoses.”

Authorities said the couple, from Dillsboro, Ind., acknowledged using heroin while with two children, a 5-year-old girl and 8-year-old boy.
