A woman has been charged after her two-year-old daughter suffered burns.

Officials in Texas heard that she told witnesses she'd put the child in the oven.

Deputies were called late on Thursday to a home because a child had burns.

The Somervell County Sheriff's Office said witnesses told deputies on arrival that 35-year-old Tasha Shontell Hatcher said she had put her child in the oven.

Hatcher was charged with injury to a child with serious bodily injury and formally read a criminal charging document on Saturday.

Her bond was set at $300,000.

The child was taken to a Dallas hospital.
