A Milwaukee mother has been accused of killing her 4-year-old son by setting him on fire in a bathtub in their apartment, according to multiple reports.

According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Amelia DiStasio’s son, Antonio, begged her to stop as she allegedly used 7 belts to bind his arms behind his back before placing him into the tub where he was burned to death with cooking oil.

A resident of the apartment complex where the 23-year-old woman lived with her young son allegedly told police she heard Antonio yell, “Please mommy, stop! I won’t do it again!” the woman alleged she then heard the suspect yell: “Shut up!”

DiStasio has been charged with first-degree intentional homicide, according to online court records accessed by PEOPLE.
