Grandmother charged with murder after stabbed baby found in hot oven

Emergency dispatchers received the call after 7 p.m. on Monday, Sheriff Kelvin Williams said.

Jones made an initial appearance Tuesday evening before a judge, who set bail at $500,000.

Police were called Monday night to a home on Martin Luther King Drive in the small city of Shaw, Williams said.

The state pathologist will have to determine if the child was dead prior to being placed into the oven or vice versa. Authorities say she had been living with her grandmother at the time of death.

Shaw, with 2,000 residents, is about 100 miles (160 kilometers) northwest of Jackson in Mississippi's Delta region.

The child's body was sent to a crime lab in Jackson for an autopsy, Williams said at the news conference.

'It's trying for us to come upon a scene and see a victim such as this. It was unclear late Tuesday if she has a lawyer who could speak for her.

SHAW, Miss. (WTVA) - One person is in custody after a baby was stabbed, placed in an oven and baked, according to the Bolivar County sheriff.

Williams said a family member of the girl found her body and called police.

Williams says he won't release the names of the grandmother or the toddler until the filing of the murder charge is completed. Police tape still surrounded part of the house Tuesday morning, while a stroller, a high chair, and a trash barrel of toys including a scooter sat near the curb in front of the house.

Sheriff Kelvin Williams said they thought the child had been stabbed and burned.

A grandmother is being questioned after her dead granddaughter was found inside a heated oven in a MS town.

A woman in Greenville, about 20 miles (32 kilometers) from Shaw, pleaded guilty to cooking her 3-year-old son to death in an oven in March 2011.
