Somerville woman indicted on child abuse charges
The Morgan County Sheriff’s Office has arrested a Somerville woman who was indicted on charges of child sexual abuse following a lengthy investigation.
Kathy Davis of 124 Water Tower Road in Somerville was charged with sexual abuse of a child under 12 years old.

Evidence was gathered and presented to a Morgan County Grand Jury. Wilkes remains in the Morgan County Jail on bonds totaling $500,000.
The sheriff’s office said the indictment of Davis is the culmination of long investigation. She remains in the Morgan County Jail on a $20,000 bond.
