Documents: Toddler fatally burned put in oven by sibling

HOUSTON (AP) — Texas Child Protective Services says a toddler who died from severe burns was put in an oven by one of her two 3-year-old siblings when the children were left alone in their Houston apartment.

KTRK-TV reports court documents it obtained show 19-month-old J’zyra Thompson’s two siblings told CPS investigators that one of them put the girl in the oven and the other turned it on.

Police believe the girl was one of four children who were left alone Monday by their mother and her boyfriend.

According to court records, the two 3-year-olds told CPS workers they made the oven “hot.” They said the baby was kicking the oven door while inside.

CPS workers say in court documents that charges are expected to be filed.
