Middle TN Teen Charged in Niece’s Murder

A North Central Tennessee teen is accused in the death of her four-month old niece.

19-year-old Abbie-Louise Buckley was babysitting the child. Stewart County authorities say the baby wouldn’t stop crying so Buckley shook her and threw the baby against the wall. She called 911 when the baby lost consciousness.

The infant was pronounced dead on the scene. Buckley is charged with Murder and Aggravated Child Abuse. She’s being held without bond.
