SULLIVAN COUNTY, Tenn. (WTVF) — An East Tennessee woman was indicted on multiple charges of false reporting after her young daughter was found dead on a family member's property.

A grand jury indicted Megan Boswell on 11 counts of false reporting, according to NewsChannel 11 WJHL. Her daughter's body was found back in March after she'd been missing for weeks.

Sullivan County Sheriff's Office officials said Boswell would give them conflicting statements during the search for her daughter.
