Deva Young is being held on $50,000 bond.

CLEVELAND, Ohio (WYTV) – A mother from Warren was indicted by a Cuyahoga County grand jury on charges that she overdosed her child on insulin medication.

Prosecutors say 22-year-old Deva Young intentionally caused an insulin overdose for her 6-year-old daughter.  Investigators say she brought the child to a Cleveland hospital for low blood sugar (hypoglycemia).

Investigators say she brought the child to a Cleveland hospital for low blood sugar (hypoglycemia). Hospital staff was able to bring the girl’s sugar blood levels to normal but then she immediately dropped back into a hypoglycemic state. Hospital staff believes Young was responsible.

Investigators say the child was treated at Akron Children’s Hospital earlier in March with the same symptoms.

Young remains free on a $50,000 bond.
