Woman charged for promoting toddler fight

ST. LOUIS - Some people post pictures of cute toddlers on Facebook.  Then there's the mom in St. Louis who prosecutors say put up images that are anything but cute. 

Authorities have charged Latonya Davis with two counts of endangering the welfare of a child after the 21-year-old woman ordered a pair of toddlers to fight, then posted the video of them on Facebook.
Police say Davis egged on her own 2-year-old daughter to fight with a 3-year-old boy she was babysitting this summer. While they duked it out, she taped the pint-sized kids brawling.
The investigating officer says Davis is heard laughing and encouraging the children to punch each other while they cry hysterically.
