Mom Sentenced to Life, Put Baby in Microwave

china-arnoldOhio - After deliberating for six hours over the course of two days, an Ohio jury recommended life in prison without parole for a mother convicted of killing her month-old baby in a microwave. The jury, which had found her guilty of aggravated murder a week earlier, spared 31-year-old China Arnold from the death penalty in her third trial for daughter Paris Talley’s 2005 death. In an effort to avoid a death sentence, the defense told the jury that Arnold was very drunk at the time of the killing and that she had no prior criminal history. Arnold was accused of putting her baby in a microwave and turning it on after a fight with her boyfriend in August 2005.
