Word on the Curb… A woman in Missouri baked her 1-month-old daughter when she mistakenly put her in the oven, thinking it was the baby’s crib. Her bond was reduced during a court hearing on Tuesday.

Charged is 26-year-old Mariah Thomas.

On February 9, police reported that the mother placed the child in the oven instead of her crib. Paramedics declared the child dead at a Midtown residence where Thomas and her 1-month-old baby resided. According to reports, family members close to Thomas are saying she may have had a mental illness or been suffering from cognitive disabilities.

Thomas was charged with first-degree endangering the welfare of a child. On Tuesday at a hearing, the judge lowered her bond from $200,000 to $100,000, according to KSHB.

The mother has an arraignment scheduled for March 4.
