GREENVILLE, MS (WDAM) - A Greenville woman has been arrested in the death of her 3-year-old son after police said they found the child in the oven.

Police Chief Freddie Cannon says 24-year-old Terrie A. Robinson is charged with murder in her son's death.

Washington County Coroner Methel Johnson said police found Tristan Robinson's body inside the oven of his mother's apartment shortly after midnight Wednesday. Johnson said the child suffered burns to his body as well as trauma to his head. An autopsy has been ordered to determine if the child died before or after being placed in the oven.
