Carolyn Jones, 48, is accused of killing Royalty Marie Flaw at her home. Police were called to her house in Shaw, Mississipi, after a relative found the 20-month-old’s body inside the oven.

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

Homicide

He said: ‘I have been in law enforcement a long time and one of the hardest things that I have experienced is when you see a child as a victim.

‘It’s trying for us to come upon a scene and see a victim such as this. A family member came home and saw that something had happened.

Autopsy

‘They found the child in the oven and called the Shaw Police Department who in turn contacted us to assist in a homicide investigation.’

Her body has been sent to the state Crime Lab in Pearl for an autopsy.
