YOUNGSTOWN — The Mahoning County Coroner’s office received $10,806 in state funding from the Ohio Department of Health to help cover the cost of toxicology screenings conducted after suspected drug-overdose deaths.

The state allocated $2 million to coroner’s offices across the state in the 2018-2019 state budget. The money is allocated in proportion to the number of toxicology screenings performed per county.
