Mississippi:Royalty still alive when she was cooked in oven by grandma- Autopsy reveals




A baby girl Royalty Marie Floyd who was found stabbed and burned at her grandmother’s home was still alive when she was placed in an oven, an autopsy has revealed.

Carolyn Jones, 48, is charged with first-degree murder after her granddaughter Royalty Marie Floyd’s body was discovered at her home in Shaw, Mississippi last week.

An autopsy report, obtained by the Bolivar Commercial, found that the 20-month-old-girl had died “from sharp stab wounds and inhaling the heated air” – meaning she was still alive when she was placed inside the hot oven.


The Shaw Police Department said that Jones’ brother had made the gruesome discovery and called the police at around 7pm on October 15.


“A family member (of the victim) came home and saw that something had happened,” said Sheriff Kelvin Williams.

“They found the child in the oven and called the Shaw Police Department who in turn contacted us to assist in a homicide investigation. When the sheriff’s office arrived at the scene it was confirmed that a homicide had taken place inside the home.”

Veronica Jones, the 20-month-old girl’s mother, said that she is still coming to terms with the fact her own mother is allegedly responsible.

“Royalty Marie Floyd was the best thing that ever happened to me. She’s my one and only daughter. My first love,” she said.

Veronica said her daughter’s death was “the hardest thing that I ever had to go through in my life”.

Russian: President Putin eases access to citizenship for east Ukraine residents.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed an order simplifying the procedure for obtaining a Russian passport for residents of the rebel-controlled Donetsk and Luhansk regions of eastern Ukraine, the Kremlin said on Wednesday.

Separatist rebellions broke out against Ukrainian rule in both regions in 2014. Moscow provided military help for the separatists, according to evidence gathered by Reuters, though Russian officials have denied providing material support.

Large swathes of the two regions are now under the de facto control of the Moscow-backed rebels, while Kiev says it is determined to re-assert its control, a position backed by most Western countries.

There was no immediate reaction from Kiev to Putin’s order. Ukrainian officials are likely to react angrily to any indication Moscow is drawing the rebel regions closer into its own orbit.
