A single mother has been arrested after she allegedly placed her toddler daughter inside a hot oven.
Tasha Hatcher reportedly gave no reason for her actions, which left the two-year-old with second and third degree burns.
Police were called to the 35-year-old’s home in Glen Rose, Texas, where witnesses say Hatcher had placed the girl inside the oven.
The youngster was rushed to hospital where she is recovering from her injuries.
Neighbour Arutro Villa said that Hatcher was always playing with her daughter, but heard loud music and saw her acting strangely on the night of the incident.
He told WFAA8: “It was unusual.”
Child Protective Services have taken custody of the girl and banned her family from having any contact with her during the investigation.
She will be placed in foster care once she is released from hospital.
Hatcher has been charged with injury to a child with serious bodily injury and remains behind bars.
