St. Louis, MO (KSDK) - A south city mother will spend two years on probation, and must attend parenting classes after admitting to staging a fistfight between her two year old daughter to fight with a three year old boy.
22 year old Latonya Davis admitted to child endangerment charges in exchange for not being sent to jail.
Police arrested Davis she posted a video on Facebook showing the children crying as they threw repeated punches at each other. Authorities say the woman could be heard in the video background laughing and telling them what to do.
As part of the probation conditions, Davis must comply with the court directive she attend sixty hours of parenting classes within the next three months.
Davis is also forbidden to have any weapons, drugs, or to socialize with any person convicted of such a crime for the next two years.
A review of Davis' progress will be heard in court in January.
