BLOUNTVILLE, Tenn. (WJHL) — Megan Boswell, mother of deceased toddler Evelyn Boswell, appeared in court on Thursday afternoon.

District Attorney Barry Staubus asked the court for more time to announce plans for enhanced punishment regarding Boswell’s charges.

Judge Jim Goodwin set a date of Jan. 22 for the district attorney’s office to announce its plans for enhanced punishment.

Staubus stated that the rising COVID-19 cases in Sullivan County had played a role in slowing down the discovery and decision process.

Boswell’s attorney, Brad Sproles, will also update the court on the motion filed for a change of venue on Jan. 22.

Judge Goodwin also told Sproles he could share the results of the autopsy of Evelyn with Megan.
