Local NBC affiliate WBIR reports that Stacy Duggan, 35, was arrested on Monday and arraigned on charges of child neglect and probation violation.
The couple's son allegedly found the .22-caliber derringer pistol between the mattress and slats of a bunk bed, according to The Associated Press.
Just a week before, investigators said Duggan was shot in the back of the head by her son in their home in what was described as a likely accident. Stacy's husband, Daniel Duggan, also faces charges of child abuse.
Daniel Duggan, 37, was previously charged with child abuse after his son was injured in a 2011 car accident that left him with a cognitive disability. Daniel Duggan has been freed on a $2,500 bond.
