A North Texas mother is in custody tonight after allegedly burning her two-year-old by placing the child inside an oven.
Deputies with the Somervell County Sheriff’s Department were called to a house after getting a report about a two-year-old with severe body burns.
When officers arrived they found a woman, later identified as Tasha Shontell Hatcher, at the house. The 35-year-old reportedly told officers she had put her baby in the oven.
Hatcher was arrested and has been charged with Injury to a Child with Serious Bodily Injury, a first-degree felony.
The two-year-old was initially taken by ambulance to Harris Methodist Hospital in Fort Worth but was later transported by CareFlite air ambulance to the Parkland Burn Center in Dallas.
Hatcher is being held on a $300,000 bond.
