$5 Million Bond for Mother of Boy Found Dead in Oven.
A judge in Mississippi has set a $5 million bond for a mother who was arrested after police found her 3-year-old son’s burned body in an oven.
Terrie Robinson, 24, of Greenville, has been charged with murder in the death of her son, Tristan Robinson.
Officers with the Greenville Police Department discovered the child’s body Wednesday after they responded to an emergency call. Authorities have declined to provide additional details on the call, citing the ongoing investigation, The Associated Press reported. City Judge Michael Prewitt set the bond amount Thursday during Robinson’s arraignment.According to Washington County Coroner Methel Johnson, the child’s body had been burned and was warm when it was removed from the electric oven. The coroner also noted the boy had suffered some sort of trauma to the head, but it is unclear if the injuries caused his death.
"This is a really sad moment for me. I’ve seen a lot of things, but this is one that will stick in my memory for a long, long time," Johnson told the AP.
An autopsy that is being conducted on the child today is expected to shed more light on the case and reveal whether he was dead before he was placed in the oven, police said.
