A Roane County couple accused of starving their toddler son didn’t appear for arraignment Monday.
Instead, Matthew and Amanda Dotson, who are in protective custody at Roane County Jail, are to appear on July 13 on their first-degree murder charges.
District Attorney Russell Johnson said several factors made it difficult to have their arraignment on its original date.
“We had over 100 indictments (this grand jury). I don’t know how many got arraigned Monday. It was just a numbers issue,” Johnson said.
