Boswell was charged with giving false reports. Special Agent Brian Fraley with the TBI testified in court, saying she made multiple false statements which cost investigators time.
Monday marked her first court appearance since authorities discovered what they believe to be the remains of Evelyn on a property belonging to a family member of Megan Boswell in the 500 block of Muddy Creek Road.
Investigators found clothes that matched the description of what Evelyn was last seen wearing. They also found toys, diapers and other child's clothing. The remains will be sent for an autopsy and a positive identification, TBI said.
