LEBANON, Ohio – A Warren couple was charged with cooking methamphetamine in front of their children.
Shannon and Marsha McKinley were caught making the highly addictive illegal drug using toxic chemicals when Warren County Sheriff’s deputies served an arrest warrant at their apartment complex, according to assistant Warren County prosecutor John Arnold.
"Everyday we see examples of what goes bad with these things, when apartments blow up,” Arnold said. You have an explosive chemical device, so it can be unlimited harm."
About 113 grams of meth had already been manufactured in the couple’s home and they were in the process of creating more, he added.
A neighbor, Charles Blank was in disbelief when he heard the news.
"That isn't right. Well that isn't right to start with – the making it that's the biggest – but to make it in front of your children, just pumping things with kids to make them do it themselves," he said.
The McKinleys face charges of illegal manufacture of drugs in the vicinity of a child as well as child endangering and several other changes. They are scheduled to appear in a Warren County court Wednesday morning.
