LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) -- Prosecutors Tuesday charged singer-actress Courtney Love with two felony counts of drug possession.

Love -- leader the alternative rock band Hole and wife of late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain -- was arraigned in Beverly Hills Superior Court after voluntarily surrendering to authorities. She stands accused of possessing painkillers -- Hydrocodone and Oxycodone -- without a prescription.

The charges stem from a wild night earlier in October, during which Love was taken into custody after she allegedly tried to break into a friend's home.

Only hours after being released, paramedics were called to her Beverly Hills home where they found Love had overdosed, allegedly on the painkillers cited in the charges.

As a result, Love lost custody of her 11-year-old daughter, Frances -- her child with Cobain.

A judge will determine whether Love is eligible for a drug diversion program, which might spare her jail time.
