On March 7, Brymer-Armstrongs daughter, Kayleigh Armstrong, was found in a swimming pool at their residence on Old State Highway in Spencer, not breathing. CPR was performed and Kayleigh was transported to the White County Hospital where hospital staff was able to regain a pulse and labored breathing. She was then transported to Erlanger Medical Center in Chattanooga where she died the next day.
Brymer-Armstrong, who has since moved to Lebanon, told investigators that she left Kayleigh unattended for more than an hour while she played video games with headphones on in the back bedroom. The 31st Judicial District Attorney General requested TBI investigate the death in July.
Brymer-Armstrong was booked into the Van Buren County Jail on $25,000 bond.
