Texas Toddler Cooked to Death in Oven
A Texas mother and her boyfriend have been charged in the death of the woman’s baby girl in November.
Raquel Thompson, mother of the child, was charged in the death of her 19-month-old daughter, J’zyra, along with her boyfriend Cornell Malone. Malone is facing four counts of child endangerment.
The couple left the infant alone at home with three siblings. Officials say one of the children put the baby in the oven and turned it on. A child protective services worker says one of the three-year-olds took responsibility for putting the baby in the oven.
All three minors have been taken into cps custody.
