A Kansas City mother allegedly killed her 1-month-old baby by placing her in the oven, according to court documents filed in Jackson County, Missouri.
The mother was arrested and charged with felony child endangerment in the first degree, according to a complaint filed Friday in county circuit court.
Officers from the Kansas City Police Department went to the home Friday afternoon after receiving a report of a “non-breathing infant,” the complaint stated.
“Officers observed apparent burn wounds to the victim’s body,” a detective said in the probable cause statement. “The Kansas City Fire Department (KCFD) responded and declared the victim deceased on scene.”
