Cookeville Mother Charged With Raping Son

A 34-year-old Cookeville woman remains jailed today after being indicted on a charge of raping her own six-year-old son. Authorities say the investigation began a few months ago when the child began acting inappropriately with other children. Cookeville police detective Bobby Anderson says an investigation revealed that the mother allegedly had sexual contact with the child in August of last year. He says the mother denies the accusation, but he took evidence in the case to the grand jury which issued an indictment charging the mother with "rape of a child." She'll be in court next month. The victim was removed from the home and is now reportedly living with relatives.
