NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — The mother of Evelyn Boswell appeared before a judge Friday morning and could be indicted later this month.

Maggie Boswell appeared for an arraignment via video, where attorneys said they needed more time to review interviews before the case moves forward.

The toddler’s disappearance prompted an Amber Alert earlier this year. Her body was found a little more than two weeks later.

Maggie Boswell has been charged with filing a false report in the case. She could be indicted on May 20 or when the grand jury reconvenes in June.

WVLT reports that the Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office has identified multiple persons-of-interest in the child’s death.
