Grandmother kills and cooks granddaughter

A grandmother is being charged with murdering, and

then cooking her 20 month old granddaughter. The

horrific crime happened in Jackson, Miss.

Police charged 48-year-old Carolyn Jones with first-

degree murder in the death of baby Royalty Marie

Floyd.

“I’ve been doing law enforcement for 25 or 26 years

now,” Williams told The Associated Press. “This is

one of the most horrible things I’ve seen in doing law

enforcement. The hardest part ... is to see a child

victim.”

Police say that Royalty lived with her grandmother,

who had custody of the toddler.

Warren Strain at the Mississippi Department of Public

Safety told the media that the Carolyn Jones' brother

found the body of little Royalty on Monday night and

called police.

Police investigators arrested Carolyn after brief

questioning and are charging her with murder.

Authorities are still not yet certain as to the cause of

Royalty's death, or whether that was before she was

placed in the oven. But Royalty was stabbed multiple

times before being burned in the oven.

The child’s body has been sent to the state Crime Lab

in Pearl for an autopsy.
