One person is in custody in connection with the death of a baby who was reportedly stabbed then placed into an oven and baked, local authorities say.

According to WTVA, it happened Monday night in Bolivar County, Missisisppi. 

Mississippi Department of Public Safety spokesman Warren Strain says police were called to a home in Shaw. There, a 20-month-old girl was found dead in an oven.

The Bolivar County Sheriff’s Office says the baby died after it was stabbed and put inside an oven and baked, WTVA reports.

Strain says officials are still investigating the girl’s cause of death, as well as when the girl may have died. The body has been sent for an autopsy.

The suspect, whose identity has not been released, is being held at the Bolivar County Regional Correctional Facility. 

That person is being questioned in the death but charges had not been filed as of Tuesday morning. 

The investigation is ongoing.
