(Coatesville) -- A suburban Philadelphia woman has been arrested for repeatedly injected her 14-year-old daughter and another teen with heroin. 

34-year-old Jessica Lynn Riffey of Chester County is accused of supplying the 14-year-old girl and a 16-year-old boy with heroin, tying a string around their arms to isolate veins and injecting them on multiple occasions last month. 

Riffey is charged with corruption of minors, endangering the welfare of children and drug delivery.

She's jailed in lieu of $50,000 pending a preliminary hearing Friday.

Online court records didn't list a lawyer to comment on the charges. 

Riffey's boyfriend allegedly supplied heroin for the teens to snort.

He's been charged separately with drug dealing and other offenses.
