PHOENIX – A local woman is in jail after police confiscated a video from her cell phone that shows her young daughter playing with a loaded gun.

Wendy Fuentes, 20, appeared in court for the first time Friday after being charged with child abuse charges.

The alleged video taken on her cell phone shows her 3-year-old daughter playing with the loaded gun.

The video allegedly shows the child pointing the gun at Fuentes as a voice in the background says, “Show me how you point the gun at mom.”

Fuentes reportedly began crying following her arrest saying she did not know her child was handling a read handgun.
