A 35 year old Texas mother, Tasha Hatcher, was jailed on Thursday for allegedly putting her two-year-old daughter in the oven which left the toddler with third degree burns following the bizarre act.
Police arrived at her family home after witnesses said she put the child inside the oven. No reason was given why she committed such atrocity.
A spokesperson for Child Protective Services confirmed that the agency has taken custody of the girl.
The girl’s uncle says he and other relatives have been barred from having any contact with the toddler while the investigation is on going.
The toddler is still in hospital, according to Fox 4. She is sedated but is believed to be in a stable condition.
Hatcher was charged with Injury to a child with serious bodily injury. She was arraigned Saturday. She is being held on a $300,000 bond.
