Two New Haven residents have been indicted on several felony and misdemeanor charges after they allegedly manufactured methamphetamine in front of three juveniles.

Jennifer Lynn Walling, 33, and Roy Allen Cottongim, 39, knowingly caused three children to be present in their home on 264 St. Catherine while the two manufactured methamphetamine on or about Nov. 23, according to the indictments.

The two were indicted by a Nelson County grand jury Thursday.

Detective Michael Watts, who is listed as the grand jury witness on the indictments, said police found remnants of a meth lab in Walling’s and Cottongim’s bedroom.

Watts said the three children are now in the hands of Child Protective Services.

Walling and Cottongim were indicted on three counts of fourth-degree controlled substance endangerment to a child, three counts of complicity to fourth-degree controlled substance endangerment to a child, manufacturing methamphetamine (first offense), complicity to manufacturing methamphetamine (first offense), second-degree possession of a controlled substance, complicity to second-degree possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, complicity to possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of prescription not in its original container (first offense), complicity to possession of prescription not in its original container (first offense), possession of marijuana and complicity to possession of marijuana.

Bail for Walling and Cottongim was set at $50,000 cash, plus conditions.

The two will be arraigned in Nelson County Circuit Court at 1 p.m. Jan. 23.

The indictment of a person by a grand jury is an accusation only and the person is innocent unless and until proven guilty.
