MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A Dyersburg, Tennessee woman was charged with aggravated child abuse after her 5-month-old child was left with critical injuries from blunt-force trauma to the head and body, Dyersburg police said.
Police said they responded to a 911 hangup around 6 Tuesday night. They found Aaliyah Enochs, 20, crying at an address on Schaffer Street.
