A nineteen month old toddler is dead after police said that they found the little girl severely burned inside of a Houston apartment.
J’zyra Thompson was found burned inside of the oven after she was left home alone with her three siblings who range in age from three to five years old.
Authorities said that the mother and boyfriend went out for the evening leaving the children to care for one another inside the apartment.
The mother told authorities that she left the children in the care of her boyfriend.
Witnesses said that this is not the first time the children were left by themselves and that it was “common” to see and hear them alone.
Police reported that the children have all been removed from the mother’s custody and are under the care of Child Protective Services.
