Toddler dies after siblings lock her in oven

( - Two Houston 3-year-olds who were left home alone Thursday locked their 19-month-old sister in an oven, turned it on and killed her.

Child Protective Services records reviewed by KTRK show one child put J’Zyra Thompson in the oven and the other made it “hot.” The baby reportedly kicked the oven door while inside. Attempts to resuscitate Thompson, who had multiple burns, were unsuccessful.

No charges have been filed yet, though CPS workers wrote in a court filing that criminal charges are expected. The children are currently in foster care.

J’Zyra’s mom, Racquel Thompson, left her four kids – all under the age of 5 – home alone while she and a boyfriend got food at Domino's Pizza and filled a prescription at Walgreens, police said.
