HAYTI, MO (KFVS) -

A Hayti woman faces charges after the Pemiscot County sheriff says a 1-year-old girl was burned with an iron.

Angela Smith, 27, of Hayti is charged with assault second degree and endangering the welfare of a child.

Pemiscot County deputies and the Missouri Children's Division began an investigation in March after a report of a child being physically abused and believed to have been burned with an iron.

The 1-year-old girl and her siblings were removed from the home and placed in foster care.

Smith's bond is set at $25,000. She is scheduled to appear before Judge Byron Luber on May 10.
