SPRING CITY, Tenn. (AP) — A deputy has testified that the death of a 5-year-old Tennessee boy followed punishments that included eating cigarette butts and drinking dish soap.
Rhea County Sheriff's Detective Rocky Potter testified Wednesday during a preliminary court hearing for the boy's mother, 29-year-old Jessica Robbins, and her boyfriend, 22-year-old Bradley Adcox. Both are charged with murder and aggravated child abuse in the Aug. 30 death of Landon Robbins.
