A couple accused of selling their children to a sex film ring will remain in custody until their case is completed.
40 year-old Connie Sue McCall and her husband, 61 year-old Ronnie Lee McCall waived their right to a detention hearing on Tuesday in federal court in Greeneville.
A federal grand jury charged the couple with selling children for the purpose of creating child porn and other sex-related charges.
Back in July 2012 Johnson City police arrested the McCalls.
The charges against them then were felony child abuse and neglect. At the time, investigators said the family lived in a mobile home and described the conditions inside the home as "deplorable."
