According to Metro Police, the mother and grandmother reported that Lane called them on the evening of August 13 while she was babysitting and said she had tripped and fallen while holding Maddox Roberts of Murfreesboro, causing him to also hit the floor. Lane called 911.
Paramedics worked to resuscitate and stabilize the victim before transporting him to Vanderbilt. He died on August 15.
Autopsy findings showed that Maddox suffered extensive head injuries inconsistent with Lane’s claim of a fall. The Medical Examiner’s Office concluded the child died as the result of homicide.
In addition to murder, Lane is charged with aggravated child abuse and aggravated child neglect. Lane is being held in the Metro Jail in lieu of $200,000 bond.

2 appellate court judges are stepping down
May 24, 2013 21:29 GMT
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Two Tennessee appellate court judges have notified Gov. Bill Haslam that they will not run for another term on the bench in the August 2014 retention election.
Patricia J. Cottrell, a judge on the Court of Appeals, and Joseph M. Tipton, who sits on the Court of Criminal Appeals bench, will both leave after September of next year.
The announcements come after the state legislature left Tennessee without a way to replace judges who step down or die when a commission expires at the end of next month.
Members of the soon-to-be-defunct Judicial Nominating Commission will make recommendations for replacements to give to Haslam before the panel expires. Haslam will appoint the replacements from those recommendations.
