ELIZABETHTON — The mother of a 4-year-old who was killed last month when he was run over by a dump truck was arrested Tuesday on first degree murder and aggravated child abuse charges.

Tiffani Marie Holston was indicted by a Carter County grand jury on Tuesday and was immediately arrested. She was already at the Carter County Justice Center, where she had a court appearance in Criminal Court on outstanding drug charges.

First District Attorney General Tony Clark said the charges were sent to the grand jury after an investigation which included statements from eye witnesses and viewings of video from security cameras at several businesses in close proximity to the intersection of Lynn Avenue and Broad Street, where Joshua Holston was hit by the truck on Oct. 11.
