ELIZABETHTON, Tenn. -

A Carter County woman is facing charges in connection to a child abuse investigation.

The sheriff’s department has released very few details about the investigation at this point.

The sheriff says the woman was charged as part of a severe sexual and child abuse investigation.   

We are expecting to learn more about the case during an afternoon press conference at the sheriff’s department.
