Toddler burned to death in oven 'after game with older siblings' ends in tragedy

The body of 19-month-old J'zyra Thompson was found by the cooker and police say the pregnant mother left the tots when she went to work on Monday night

A toddler has been burned to death in an oven after a game with three older siblings aged three to five ended in tragedy when they were left home alone.

The body of J'zyra Thompson was found by the cooker and police say the pregnant mother left the tots when she went to work on Monday night.

Officers in Houston, US, said it is thought the children started playing with the cooker at about midnight and shortly afterwards the police were called.

They added it was unclear whether the little girl had been in the oven or on the hob.
It is claimed the woman initially left the children in the care of her boyfriend but that were alone when the accident happened.

The mother and her boyfriend were questioned yesterday and the children have been taken into protective custody.

No charges have yet been brought.


J'zyra's grandmother, Gina Dennis, said: "She was a sweet baby. This is unexplainable. I have no words," reports Click 2 Houston .

A GoFundMe account has been set up to help with the funeral costs.
