FLORENCE, AL (WAFF) -

A Lauderdale County couple charged with possessing and producing child porn will have a hearing before a federal judge Wednesday morning.

This is an arraignment hearing, so this is the phase where they will enter their plea of guilty or not guilty on these federal charges. The couple also faces state charges in Lauderdale County.

Patricia and Matthew Ayers were at a hearing in Lauderdale County back in January. Federal agents said they found dozens of pornographic images of a child on computers, cell phones and thumb drives. A Madison County man said he actually discovered the pictures when he was downloading some material from Patricia Ayers's computer.

WAFF 48 News will have a crew in the courtroom for the 10 a.m. hearing to bring you the latest updates.
