Detective Billie Brown of the McDowell County Sheriff’s office charged 29-year-old Michael Allen Cunningham of Scotts Cove Road in Nebo with felonious child abuse inflicting serious bodily injury and 37-year-old Shelby Nicole Weathers of the same address with felonious negligent child abuse inflicting serious bodily injury and felonious accessory after the fact.

Cunningham was held on a $200,000 secured bond and Weathers was held on a $75,000 secured bond.

In September, McDowell County Sheriff’s detectives began investigating reports the couple had abused a child between 7 and 16 years of age. McDowell County DSS and South Mountains Children’s Advocacy Center assisted the Sheriff’s Office in the investigation.
