YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – A Youngstown woman whose child died from a cocaine overdose, along with the woman’s boyfriend went to jail Tuesday afternoon.

Raenell Allen turned herself into the Mahoning County Court Common Pleas and was taken into custody. Her bond was set at $50,000. She bonded out later on Tuesday.

Her boyfriend, Kevin Gamble, was also taken into custody on Tuesday. His bond was set at $75,000.

Both were indicted by a Mahoning County grand jury earlier this month on involuntary manslaughter and drug charges.

Both are set for trial in August.
