GREENE COUNTY, Tenn. -- A couple in Tennessee will face charges of aggravated child abuse and aggravated child endangerment, after police say they tried to sell a 5-month-old baby on Craigslist.

Deanna Grier and John Cain were arrested Friday in Elizabethtown.

Another couple saw their ad and tipped off the police.

An undercover officer posed as a buyer and arranged to meet the pair at a Dollar General. When Grier and Cain showed up and handed over the child for $3,000, they were arrested.

The child is now under state care.
