A former daycare worker who admitted to putting hot sauce in a baby's food will spend 8 months behind bars. 

Prosecutors say Rosie Hicks admitted to giving the then 13-month-old baby hot sauce in his food last April, and then laughing when he cried. 

Hicks and Tracy Owens were arrested by police in Okemah. Both women worked at the Muscogee Creek Nation child development center. Owens is scheduled to go to trial in the case on March 11th.

You stupid, stupid, B___hes! I cannot believe two grown women, who are in charge of children and have been, could do something so cruel and then be stupid enough not to think they would get caught. I JUST DON'T GET IT!!!!!!!!! Torture a baby over jealousy, OMG!!!!! Our world is "going to hell in a hand basket", as my grandmother use to say. If I were a parent of any child that was cared for by these women, I would be trying to find out what else they might have done for "laughs". How absolutely pathetic! You two don't need jail, you need to be put out with the pigs!

These two should be thrown into a huge vat of the stuff, I am a lover of very hot pepper, and Habanero is the second hottest pepper I know, only surpassed by the Ghost Chili, if it hadn't been so hard to find they would probably have given it to the baby, I hope these two go up for a long time, what a couple of p's of s**t! I hope the parents of this baby find these two and take care of business right.
