A grandmother from MS in the USA has been arrested after a 20-month-old's lifeless body was found inside an oven, stabbed and burnt.

The girl's grandmother has been taken into custody but not charged, Bolivar County Sheriff Kelvin Williams told local news outlets.

Royalty had been living with her grandmother at the time of her death and it's unclear where her parents were.

The child was found after a call around 7 p.m. Monday night at a house on Martin Luther King Drive in Shaw, Miss., according to WTVA.

Spokesman Warren Strain at the Mississippi Department of Public Safety said investigators are still trying to determine the girl's cause of death, as well as her time of death. Jones remained jailed and it wasn't immediately clear if she had a lawyer who could speak for her.

'The official cause (of death) is still under investigation but authorities have reason to believe that the child was stabbed and burned. The child's body has been sent to the state Crime Lab in Pearl for an autopsy, though Williams said autopsy results were not yet complete on Tuesday.

"That's hard to say", Williams said.

Williams said deputies detained the grandmother for questioning and had held her overnight.
