BLOUNTVILLE, Tenn. (WJHL) — Megan Boswell, the Sullivan County mother charged with murdering her toddler daughter, appeared in court on Friday.

No motions were heard at Friday’s status hearing, and Boswell’s next appearance is set for Nov. 3.

“Today was really just about status,” said Gene Scott, Boswell’s defense attorney. “We’re really just continuing to ask for certain discovery documents and going through the discovery, which was quite large in the case. It was really just more about the court making sure everything is kept on track so we can make that trial date in February 2025.”

Sullivan County District Attorney General Barry Staubus told News Channel 11 they’re in the process of making sure the defense attorney, Scott, gets all the materials Boswell’s previous attorney had.

“We’re tying loose ends up on discovery, the material that we’re providing to the defense counsel and there’s a lot of it, so there’s obviously going to be some of that to be done,” Staubus said. “So that’s where we are in the process, making sure they have everything, particularly when it transfers from one lawyer to another to make sure that what we gave the first lawyer, the second set of lawyers gets the same materials.”

In a Sept. 2022 hearing, Goodwin denied Boswell’s request for a new attorney citing a “difference of opinions” with her court-appointed attorney, Brad Sproles. In that same appearance, a pathologist testified that Evelyn died of asphyxiation.

Boswell and Sproles ultimately parted ways after Sproles filed a motion in October 2022 to withdraw from the case, claiming the relationship between the two had deteriorated to the point he felt unable to properly represent her. Gene Scott was appointed to represent Boswell going forward.

Boswell faces more than a dozen charges, including two counts of felony murder, in connection to the death of her daughter, Evelyn Boswell, who was reportedly last seen alive by family members in late 2019.

“We think we have a good defense to put forward. I’m not comfortable discussing the details of that right now. We think once everything is told, it will put this case in a totally different light,” said Scott.

The trial is set to begin in February 2025.
