A woman accused of abusing her two teenage stepsons will have to find a new attorney.
Deputies arrested Jessica Cox and Kenneth McIntosh, the boys' biological father, late last year on several child abuse charges.
Investigators say Cox's 14 and 16-year-old stepsons showed up at Farragut High School in May handcuffed together and looking for help.
Tuesday, a judge agreed that Cox's attorney had a conflict of interest and ordered him off the case. She'll have to find a new attorney.
Cox and McIntosh will be back in court next month.
