A Houston mom and her boyfriend were charged Monday in the death of the mother’s 19-month-old daughter, who died after being placed in an active oven, PEOPLE confirms. Fox 26 reported, citing Child Protective Services officials, that one of Thompson’s children, a 3-year-old boy, admitted to putting 19-month-old J’zyra Thompson in the oven of the couple’s northeast Houston apartment on the evening of Nov. 16.

According to court records prosecutors filed Monday, Racqual Thompson told police she had left the children alone for about 30 minutes to pick up Malone from work. Neighbors told KHOU that it was not unusual to see Thompson’s children alone. “With just a Pamper on, no shirt, no shoes or nothing,” Miranda Oneil Johnson, a neighbor, said. “Like, running around. The oven had apparently been turned on “all the way.” The three other children who were living in the apartment — two 3-year-old siblings and a 5-year-old — have been taken into CPS custody, with the agency saying it was concerned the children were often left home alone and without adult supervision.
