CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

The father who overdosed on heroin in his 7-month-old daughter's room at Cincinnati Children's Hospital will spend two years in prison.

Wesley Landers, 32, was found unresponsive with a handgun and three heroin syringes inside a private bathroom in his daughter's room in January, court documents state.

Medical staff entered the child's room to find his wife, Mary Ann Landers, 32 unconscious with a needle in her arm, according to police. She was determined to be deceased.
