Cookeville Woman Indicted For Child Abuse

Child abuse charges are pending against a Cookeville woman who was indicted after a spanking she gave a four-year-old caused bruising. The investigation of 20-year-old Amanda Christine Winebrenner of Carr Avenue began after the child's mother took him to the emergency room last month. Authorities say it was at the hospital that the bruising allegedly caused by a spanking was documented. Meanwhile, the grand jury also indicted a Cookeville man for the sale of cocaine. An agent from the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation presented evidence against Daniel Delape.
