CLEVELAND — A mother whose infant son was found dead in her Cleveland home last week with suspected fentanyl in his system has been charged with felony child endangerment.
A judge set Casey Bisner’s bail at $50,000 during a court hearing Friday, rejecting prosecutors request for a higher bond. It wasn’t known if she’s retained an attorney, and authorities say she could face more serious charges if an autopsy shows her 15-month-old son, Ricardo Johnson, died from an overdose.
The child was found Jan. 14 at a home in the 2000 block of W. 103 Street after Bisner waved down emergency responders who were headed to an unrelated call and told them her son was unconscious.
A preliminary toxicology screening found fentanyl in the infant’s system, but a cause of death hasn't been determined.
