(AP) A woman charged with selling heroin hidden in Happy Meals when she worked for a Pittsburgh McDonalds is "emotionally crushed" by the charges.


But defense attorney David Shrager stopped short of denying the charges against 26-year-old Shantia Dennis, of East Pittsburgh.


Dennis' preliminary hearing was postponed Tuesday. It was reset for April 9 so Allegheny County prosecutors can get back crime lab tests on the alleged drugs involved.


Dennis was arrested Jan. 29 after police say they caught her selling 10 doses of heroin hidden inside a Happy Meal to a confidential informant. Investigators said they also recovered more heroin from Dennis.


Authorities say Dennis would sell the drugs to drive-thru customers who uttered the code words, "I'd like to order a toy."
