CONNELLSVILLE — A man and woman from Western Pennsylvania have been jailed on charges they forced two boys to smoke marijuana until one passed out and the other vomited.

The public defender for Kaylee Brinker, 28, of Connellsville, and Kenneth Zyskowski, 43, of Greensburg, didn’t immediately return a call on the charges including endangering the welfare of children and unlawful restraint of minors.

The (Uniontown) Herald-Standard reports today that the suspects face a preliminary hearing on the charges July 17, stemming from an incident that allegedly occurred in the basement of a South Connellsville home on April 11.

That’s where the boys say the suspects forced them to remain until they smoked the marijuana.

The boys’ ages aren’t revealed in the criminal complaints, and it wasn’t immediately clear how the suspects know the boys.
