Atmore teacher, spouse indicted for child abuse

ATMORE, Ala. (AP) - An Escambia County grand jury has indicted an Atmore kindergarten teacher and her husband on child abuse charges.

The indictments were returned last week against 37-year-old Tracy Linman and 44-year-old Terry Desmond Linman.

Each face multiple counts of child abuse and domestic misdemeanor violence. Investigators said the charges involve Tracy Linman's three children from a previous marriage.

It was not immediately known if the Linmans have retained a lawyer.

The two were released on bonds totaling $165,000 each.

The case will be prosecuted by the state attorney general's office.
