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.

“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”.
