Hawkins sheriff plans press conference to discuss beating death of child

ROGERSVILLE — Amber Beth Gibson was indicted Monday on one count of especially aggravated robbery stemming from a crime that occurred nearly 18 months ago, but her troubles might get a lot worse today.

An autopsy report that has been anticipated for nearly six months on 3-year-old Emily Barnard has been returned to the Hawkins County Sheriff’s Office.

Gibson was the prime suspect in the July 23 beating of the child, who was the daughter of Gibson’s boyfriend. Emily Barnard died from her injuries on July 25.
