GREENVILLE, Miss., March 3 (UPI) -- A Mississippi woman was charged in the death of her 3-year-old son police said they found stuffed in an electric oven.

Greenville, Miss., Police Chief Freddie Cannon said Terrie A. Robinson, 24, was arrested Wednesday and charged with murder, The (Jackson, Miss.) Clarion-Ledger reported.

Washington County Coroner Methel Johnson said police found the body of Tristan Robinson had been burned, but an autopsy would be conducted to determine whether the boy died before or after being put into the oven. He said the child's body was still warm when police extracted him.

"This is a really sad moment for me. I've seen a lot of things, but this is one that will stick in my memory for a long, long time," Johnson said.

Police were called to the apartment complex on an unknown trouble call, the Greenville Delta Democrat Times said.

Johnson said police placed a girl found in the home with the Mississippi Department of Human Services.

Robinson's twin sister, Sherrie Robinson, told WXVT-TV, Greenville, people should refrain from judging her sister until all facts are known.

"She was a great parent, a good person. We don't know what's wrong. We don't know what happened," Sherrie Robinson said. "Do not sit there and call her a bad mom 'cause that's not what she is."\

It's amazing how often this happens. The lost of a child is a different level of pain and lost. If we're fortunate to never have experienced it, we are truly blessed

We have some really sick people in this world. We have to keep all children in our prayers and ask Allah (God) to watch over them.
