A New York City woman has been accused of burning her 6-year-old daughter during a voodoo ritual and then ignoring her cries for help and sending her to bed.

Prosecutors say Marie Lauradin poured an accelerant over her daughter during a Haitian practice known as Loa and made her stand naked in a ring of fire, engulfing her in flames.

Queens District Attorney Richard Brown says Lauradin and the girl’s grandmother washed her and put her to bed despite life-threatening burns over 25 percent of her body. He says another relative found her the next day.

Lauradin was ordered held on $50,000 bail at Thursday’s arraignment on assault and child endangerment charges related to the Feb. 4 incident. Defense attorney Jeff Cohen says she denies the allegations.

The grandmother faces a later arraignment.

The girl went into foster care.
