Mother indicted on endangering charge

WEATHERFORD —  

A woman whose two young daughters were treated for possibly ingesting their mother’s prescription medication in April was indicted Thursday on two charges of abandoning or endangering a child. 

Jennifer Marie Chron, 27, is accused of putting two of her daughters, ages 5 and 2 at the time, in danger for the second time that month, according to court records. 

The children were transported to the hospital after a neighbor found Chron at his house looking for her two daughters and the children’s grandmother and others responding to Chron’s house couldn’t account for several missing prescription pills.

 

Missing pills

A neighbor called the grandmother that evening, reporting Chron appeared “out of it” and was at his house looking for her two girls and didn’t seem to know where she was at, according to court records. 

He reported she was attempting to gather his laundry while leaving her two daughters alone at her residence, the sheriff’s office said in a statement. 

The grandmother arrived to find the water running over raw meat and overflowing from the sink, and pills — the ones she’d picked up that day — all over the floor, according to CPS. 

Of the 30 originally in the bottle, she could only find eight, and Chron could not account for the missing pills, according to authorities. 

“A witness stated when she arrived at the residence, there was trash ‘all over’ the home, beer bottle were ‘everywhere’ and groceries, which had been purchased around noon that day, had not been put up,” the sheriff’s office reported. 

One of the girls, then 2 years old, appeared to pass out, according to CPS. 

Law enforcement were called around 9 p.m. 

“Deputies arrived on scene and found the children unattended with Chron disoriented and confused about the deputy’s presence at the home,” according to the sheriff’s office. “Chron had an unsteady balance and kept falling down.”
