TN man allegedly made meth while his 6-year-old son slept in rodent-infested house

A man caught making methamphetamine in two one-pot labs while his 6-year-old son slept in the unfinished, rodent-infested house they occupied has been charged with aggravated child abuse and manufacturing meth.

Christopher Michael Raby, 39, is also charged with violating probation and remains in the Roane County Jail. Both he and his son were decontaminated at the Dogtown Road scene in Ten Mile, and the child was taken to Roane Medical Center’s emergency room for a checkup.

Deputy Mark Steinmann said he and another deputy received information of an active meth lab at Raby’s residence, learned that he had a history of buying pseudoephedrine — a key ingredient in meth-making — and went to the home Tuesday.
