Witness Davis Joseph told police that he saw Dorvilier burning something in the road about 11 p.m. Friday. Dorvilier claimed her dog had defecated in the car and she was burning the waste, Joseph told NBC. But Joseph said he and his wife soon realized that a baby was on fire.

"My wife heard the baby scream. ... [Dorvilier] tried to run for it," Joseph said. "Then I put her to the ground. That's when we saw it was a baby." 

The infant was taken to St. Christopher's Hospital in Philadelphia and died two hours later.

Dorvilier is being held at the Burlington County Corrections and Work Release Center on $500,000 bail.
