Amanda Beaty and Roger Dale Prince the Second both entered not guilty pleas in the death of Amanda’s 17-month old son Levi Beaty. The baby boy died in June in Morgan County. An autopsy report revealed the toddler had suffered from several injuries, cuts and a spine fracture.

Fewer teens and pre-teens in Tennessee are abusing alcohol, according to the findings of a five-year prevention effort. The emphasis was on changing community attitudes and behaviors and the risks of having five or more drinks on one occasion. Led by the Tennessee Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services, the state’s efforts achieved reductions in binge drinking well beyond the national average. During a period from 2009 to 2013, the statewide rate of binge drinking teens, between the ages of 14 and 17, dropped nearly 16 percent. In the 18 to 25 age range, the decrease was more than five percent.
