Mom arrested for letting toddler play with loaded gun

PHOENIX (CNN) - An Arizona mom is accused of letting her toddler play with a loaded gun, taking video of it, and even letting the child point the weapon at her.

Wendy Fuentes appeared before court on child abuse charges.

Authorities said the video showed a little girl pointing a pistol at Fuentes, with a voice in the background saying "show me how you point the gun at mom" in Spanish.

Fuentes said she thought it was a fake gun.

She remains in jail.
