Default Mother 'killed her baby in the microwave'

China Arnold has been charged in the death of her daughter who authorities say was killed by being placed in a microwave
A mother went on trial yesterday accused of killing her month-old daughter by cooking her in a microwave oven while drunk.

Police investigators and scientists are expected to give evidence in the sensational case against 27-year-old China Arnold.

Arnold pleaded not guilty to a charge of aggravated murder at the beginning of her trial in Dayton, Ohio, yesterday.

If convicted by the jury in Montgomery County Common Pleas Court, she could face the death penalty.

Investigators believe that Arnold killed her daughter, Paris Talley, by putting her in a microwave at her home in August 2005 while she was drunk.



Coroner's officials say the baby suffered high-heat internal injuries and had no external burns.

They have ruled out scalding water, open flame or other possible causes of death that could have damaged the skin.

Arnold's defence lawyer Jon Paul Rion claims his client had nothing to do with her daughter's death and was stunned when investigators told her that a microwave might have been involved.

Arnold took the baby to the hospital after finding her unconscious and does not know how she died, Rion said.

During a pre-trial hearing in July, Dayton police Detective Michael Galbraith said Arnold told him she arrived home in the early morning hours after drinking, fell asleep and was awakened at 2:30 a.m. by the baby's crying.

She said she warmed a bottle in the microwave oven, tried to give it to the baby, changed the child's nappy and then fell asleep on the couch with the baby on her chest.

Arnold said she and her children were the only ones in the apartment until her boyfriend arrived several hours later and noticed something was wrong with the baby.

Galbraith said Arnold told him: "If I hadn't gotten so drunk, I guess my baby wouldn't have died."

But when cross-examined by Rion, Galbraith acknowledged that Arnold told him she didn't know how the baby suffered the burns and that she had nothing to do with it that she could recall.

Earlier this month, defence witness Robert Belloto, a staff pharmacist at Good Samaritan Hospital, testified that he doesn't believe it would have been possible for Arnold to place the baby in the microwave because the woman was so intoxicated.

Belloto said Arnold told him she had consumed about 40 percent of a pint of high-proof rum in 90 minutes.

But he acknowledged that he had no other corroboration for her claim.

If this is a true story it is quite sick what she has done.... but it does make you think of other possibilities, that could also explain why she hasn't a clue what happened.
There are stories of people throughout history that has seemingly spontaniously combusted and burnt from the inside to the point there is nothing but ashes left and no burn marks in the surrounding area...believed something to do with the bodies acids not mixing in correct measures.
sorry I don't remember too much about it.

but this is a tragic story whatever happened.

If the baby had internal burns it seems more plausible that the mother fed the baby scalding hot milk.

That sounds more plausable. If you think about a hot cup of tea or coffee, this can be hot enough to cause me considerable pain from burning my oesophagus. Tea and coffee, when made with boiling water but made cooler by adding milk, is hotter than your average hot bath. I cannot keep my foot in bath water that is nowhere near as hot as this. Microwave heat is uncontrolable from our point of view. I don't understand the temperature strengths at all.

If this mother under the influence used a microwave to heat her baby's milk, the chances are that she had none or very little concept of time in that instance. I am not condoning the mothers neglect of care at all, I am merely questioning the details.

Regardless of whether the baby's death was due to being placed in a microwave or from drinking scalding milk, this lady is a disgusting piece of filth who should rot in jail.

how is a baby gonna suck scalding hot milk enough to burn insides and die? It could have been electrocution?

they should investigate and also have a trial before they allow headlines like "mother 'killed her baby....

Crazy!
