Bolivar County Sheriff Kelvin Williams said the girl’s body has been sent to the state crime lab for an autopsy.
Bolivar County Sheriff Kelvin Williams said this is one of the hardest things he has come across during his career in law enforcement
The 20-month-old's grandmother has been arrested in connection with the murder
Jones is charged with first-degree murder and is being held on a $500,000 bond.
Bolivar County Sheriff Kelvin Williams, Sr. said he struggled to make sense of the heinous act.
Williams said: “I’ve been in law enforcement a long time, 26 years almost. I’ve been from St. Louis to here and some of the most horrific scenes that I’ve seen in law enforcement involve children."
He added: "Dark days such as these can only be brightened when justice is served."
Officials hope an autopsy will determine whether the baby died from her stab wounds before being placed in the oven or if she was baked alive.
One neighbour said: “I didn’t even know nobody was living in the house. That’s what’s really hurting me and shocked me."
Another neighbour Tomorow Williams told WLOX: “It’s a baby. It’s an innocent child. She didn’t ask to be here. I mean, if they didn’t want her why keep her?”
Under the news story that was shared on Facebook there was an outpour of shock for the innocent baby.
One said: “Obviously this woman has some sort of mental illness. While it is hard to comprehend under the circumstances, I pray this woman is examined to diagnose any condition which she may have.
“Such a tragic and heartbreaking story. Rest In Peace sweet baby.”

My view: The evil woman should be baked alive the same way, don't waste tax payers money to keep her in prison, she should get the same treament she gave that innocent and defenceless child.
