So the baby climbed in the microwave by herself?

Mom Convicted Of Microwaving Baby Wants New Trial

China Arnold, 33, the Ohio mother serving a life sentence for murdering her 28-day old daughter by placing her in a microwave to cook her in August 2005, is seeking a new trial, which would be her fourth in this case, reports CBS News.

Via NewsOne reports:

Arnold’s defense attorney, Christopher Thompson, argued that multiple errors were made in her previous trials and she should receive another one without the death penalty as an option.

Arnold, 33, was already tried three times, with the death penalty a possibility each time, in the murder of her daughter, Paris Talley. Her first trial in February 2008 ended in a mistrial and her second trial ended in September 2008 when she was found guilty but the jury could not decide on the death penalty. Montgomery County Common Pleas Judge Mary Wiseman imposed a sentence of life in prison, but that decision ultimately was overturned on appeal in November 2010.

Arnold’s third trial ended in May 2011 when she was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole after a jury did not vote for the death penalty.

As previously reported by NewsOne, Arnold’s second conviction was overturned by the Second District Court of Appeals in Dayton after the prosecution’s star witness admitted she lied when she testified that Arnold had confessed to putting her baby in the microwave.

How about building a human size microwave and putting her in it.
