Women charged with giving infant hot sauce

 Two Oklahoma daycare workers are facing felony child abuse charges after allegedly feeding habanero hot sauce to a 13-month-old boy and laughing as the infant writhed in agony.The incident occurred in March at a daycare in Muscogee Creek Nation, a federally recognized tribe of Muscogee people based in Oklahoma.

Video footage of the incident shows the daycare workers feeding the infant rice that had been doused with the hot sauce, according to court documents filed last week.

"The video show that shortly after eating from his second plate (the infant) appears to be in distress," court documents said.

While the infant appears to be in pain, one of the workers is seen laughing.
