ROGERSVILLE — A Hawkins County woman accused of placing her deceased newborn in a garbage can last April was indicted Friday by the Hawkins County grand jury on one count of felony abuse of a corpse.

On Oct. 1 the grand jury returned a “no true bill” on a homicide presentment against Kathyrn Condrey, 36, 184 Valley Crest Drive, Mount Carmel.

The grand jury opted not to press charges due to the fact that an autopsy couldn’t determine a cause of death or if the infant had been born alive.
