NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — The Lawrenceburg mother accused of aggravated child neglect in connection with the beating of her infant daughter, Addilyn, was booked back into jail on another charge Tuesday.

According to the Lawrence County Jail, Brooklyn Tidwell was arrested Tuesday on a shoplifting charge. Details of the shoplifting incident were not immediately available.

She was released from jail after posting bond in the child neglect case in early April. In that case, she and Michael Fisher are both facing charges.

The alleged incident happened in January. Police said they were called to investigate the case after the couple brought little Addilyn to Southern TN Regional Medical Center.

She was then airlifted to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, where police say the child remains in critical condition.

The affidavit alleges Fisher abused the child to the "brink of death." According to family members, Addilyn sustained broken bones including ribs, arm and chest fractures.

Tidwell, the child's mother, was charged with neglect because she allegedly did not seek medical attention for the infant.
