The grandmother of slain baby Evelyn Boswell has been cited for shoplifting at a Tennessee Walmart along with her boyfriend, authorities said.

Angela Boswell, 42, and William McCloud, 33, approached a cash register with $45.02 worth of merchandise in a grocery cart, according to a Kingsport Police Department report. The couple failed to pay for the items and tried to leave the store when they were stopped by a loss prevention officer, police said.

Police issued both of them misdemeanor citations for shoplifting and said they had been banned for life from all Walmart properties. 

Boswell and McCloud then left the store on foot, according to the report. Both also face theft charges in connection with the case of 15-month-old Evelyn, who was reported missing in February after relatives said they had not seen the baby in months.
