ROGERSVILLE — Hawkins County Sheriff Ronnie Lawson said Monday there’s only one scenario in which Amber Beth Gibson won’t be charged in the death of 3-year-old Emily Barnard.

“For charges not to be filed (the autopsy would have to say) that the exact cause of death would be natural,” Lawson told the Times-News.

Hawkins County investigators are still awaiting the arrival of a preliminary autopsy report before filing any charges related to Emily’s death late last month.
