BOARDMAN, Ohio (WYTV) – A man and woman accused of having sex in a car while the woman’s daughter was in a car seat appeared in court Tuesday morning.

Daniel Krotky, of Youngstown, and Dana Carano, of New Middletown were each charged with public indecency, child endangering and possessing drug abuse instruments charges.

Police say they caught the couple having sex behind a Boardman apartment building last week, after a caller reported seeing Carano urinating outside of the car while young children were in the area. Investigators then said Carano tried to hide a hypodermic needle inside a body cavity.

A one-year-old child was in the backseat of the vehicle during this time. Police confiscated needles and a spoon with suspected heroin residue on it that were in the car, according to a police report.

Both Krotky and Carano are due back in court later this month.
