A Lenoir City mother who was shot in the head by her 11-year- old son appeared in court Tuesday morning.

A judge arraigned Stacy Duggan on charges of child neglect and probation violation.   She was arrested Monday.

Investigators say it appears her son shot her accidentally last week at their Loudon County home.

Duggan's husband, Daniel Duggan, also faces charges of child abuse after the shooting, for leaving the gun where the boy could find it. 

He is now free on bond.

Daniel Duggan says his son was in a car accident last year and suffered a traumatic brain injury.

DCS took the couple's four children into custody last week.  They discussed visitation at Tuesday's hearing.
