FAYETTEVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A Lincoln County man has been charged with physically abusing his 7-year-old stepdaughter.

According to WKRN-TV (https://bit.ly/1KrCxl1), 29-year-old Timothy Smith was indicted this week on two counts of child abuse, as well as six counts of a convicted felon in possession of a firearm.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation began looking into Smith in November after reports he had allegedly bruised his daughter.

TBI agents also learned Smith is a convicted felon and had been carrying and using firearms while operating a fugitive recovery business.

Smith was being held Thursday in the Lincoln County Jail on $200,000 bond. Records did not show if he has an attorney.
