St. Louis, MO (KSDK) - A St. Louis woman who's accused of encouraging two youngsters to engage in a fist fight to settle their differences is expected to appear in court this morning.

Latonya Lashia Davis, 21 of the 3600 block of Hickory is charged in St. Louis Circuit Court with two counts of child endangerment after reportedly allowing her two year old daughter to fight a three year old boy Davis was babysitting earlier this summer.

Police reports indicate Davis prompted the little girl to make a fist and punch the other child.

Authorities say Davis also videotaped the battles and posted it onto her Facebook account.

Police say the troubling video showed the children crying while repeatedly punching each other.  Investigators say Davis is also heard in the background of the video laughing and encouraging the two children to battle.
