Baby Microwaved

Words escape me.

Ohio mother put baby girl in microwave

DAYTON, Ohio - A mother intentionally put her month-old daughter in a microwave oven and cooked the child to death after a fight with her boyfriend, a prosecutor told jurors Thursday.

Defendant China Arnold and her boyfriend had argued over whether he was the biological father, Assistant Montgomery County prosecutor Daniel Brandt said during closing arguments in the woman's retrial. The argument got so heated that Arnold bit her boyfriend's lip and he slapped her, Brandt said.

Arnold, 28, of Dayton, is accused of killing her infant daughter Paris Talley in 2005. She could face the death penalty if convicted of aggravated murder.

Brandt said Arnold told a cellmate she put the baby in the microwave and turned it on because she was worried her boyfriend would leave her if he found out the child wasn't his, Brandt said.

"She could have stopped it with one finger, but she didn't," Brandt said. "We know she used that microwave as the instrument of death."

Defense attorney Jon Paul Rion told the jury there was evidence that someone else was responsible.

He cited testimony from a boy who said he saw another boy walk into the kitchen of a nearby apartment with the baby, heard the microwave go on, and then later saw the burned baby in the microwave.

"He told a very believable story," Rion said.

Judge John Kessler declared a mistrial in February after he privately heard the youngster's account. The boy, now 8, testified at the retrial Tuesday.

In rebuttal, however, the 8-year-old's mother testified Wednesday that they lived some distance away and they were not at Arnold's apartment complex when the baby died. Her former live-in boyfriend also testified that he was certain the boy was not at the location.
(Since this happened in 2005 there's probably a thread about this already, but I couldn't find it.)

Thanks. Since this is an update, maybe an administrator can delete this thread or merge the two together.

This article is way different than the last original one. The first one says nothing about a fight, and also mentions a babysitter, while this one is all about the fight. Either way, whoever did is a sick fuck, and should be cokked in a giant microwave themselves.

Anybody not wearing a ribbon implicitly supports this, so they should get whatever sentence the mother in the story winds up with.

I haven't had time to secure a ribbon yet. Is there a grace period to run to my local Patriotism Hut without being lynched?

There is NO grace period, period.

(Remember what happened to Kramer? Decide Wisely.)

I'm absolutely shocked, saddened, and upset simultaneously of the thought of this poor child suffering such a horrible and probably painful death. I just don't understand how people can take this so lightly.

Well, I can only speak for myself, but I in no way am making fun of a baby dying, and folks that know me 'round here (after some near TEN YEARS), know me better than that.

(Maybe comedy is just a way some folks deal with such a horrific & tragic thing.)

YIKES & WOW, SEAN!!!

That Microwave went STRAIGHT for the Furby Brain Stem!

-FOR THEEK'S SAKE Y'ALL!

Someone needs to put her in a microwave. What a thoughtless, careless woman.

It's horrendously sad, I agree, and I can only imagine how agonizing of a death that would be.

But the Furby in the microwave was kinda cool.
