According to court records, an order for a competency evaluation was filed in March. In April, the court found Roever competent to stand trial.
She’s accused of giving a non-prescribed medication to her three children, all under the age of 10.
Court documents say on Feb. 19, Roever’s ex-husband came to pick up the kids and found Roever “drugged and groggy.”
First responders found the couple’s 7-year-old daughter on a bed not responding. Their 5-year-old initially got up from the bed but then stumbled to the ground. A third child, 7, was found in the bathroom crying.
While the kids were en-route to the hospital, paramedics used Narcan – a drug commonly used to reduce the symptoms of opioid overdose – on two of the kids.
