(WMC) Police say a 20-month-old was stabbed to death and put into a heated oven in a Shaw, Mississippi home.
Officials have identified a person in custody in connection with the murder as the toddler's 48-year-old grandmother, Carolyn Jones, who was living in the home.
Jones is charged with first-degree murder and is being held on a $500,000 bond.
Bolivar County Sheriff Kelvin Williams, Sr. said he struggled to make sense of the heinous act.
"I've been in law enforcement a long time, 26 years almost. I've been from St. Louis to here and some of the most horrific scenes that I've seen in law enforcement involve children," said Williams.
