After the hearing, Megan’s bond was increased from its initial $25,000 to its current $150,000.
Evelyn’s grandmother, Angela Boswell, as well as her friend William McCloud, were also arrested. However, they have not yet been charged in connection to the crime.
The Blountville community has set up a memorial honoring little Evelyn after the news broke of her body being found.
