(Scroll down for video) An evil mother tortured her young son and lit him on fire in the bathtub of her home, according to police in Wisconsin.

Milwaukee police said that they have arrested 23-year-old Amelia DiStasio after being accused of killing 4-year-old Antonio DiStasio.

Amelia has been charged with one count of first-degree intentional homicide.

She was booked into jail, and her bail has been set at $400,000.

If convicted, Amelia faces up to life in prison.

According to the police investigation, Amelia and Antonio lived in a home located 1700 block of W. Grant Street.

On Thursday, at around 7:30 a.m., Amelia tied up her son with seven belts.

She then placed a plastic bag on his head and dragged him into the bathtub.

Amelia then set Antonio on fire.

A neighbor called 911 after seeing smoke coming from the woman’s apartment.

Firefighters who arrived at the scene found Antonio’s burned body in the bathtub.

They also found a dead pet guinea pig that was drowned.

Amelia jumped out of a window and escaped from the scene.

Police said that Amelia searched “how do cannibals die,” and “how to kill a cannibal,” before setting Antonia on fire.
