Mom charged with baby's microwave death

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) -- A mother was arrested on suspicion of murdering her newborn daughter by microwaving the baby in an oven.

China Arnold, 26, was jailed Monday on a charge of aggravated murder, more than a year after she brought her dead month-old baby to a hospital. Bail was set Tuesday at $1 million.

"We have reason to believe, and we have some forensic evidence that is consistent with our belief, that a microwave oven was used in this death," said Ken Betz, director of the Montgomery County coroner's office.

He said the evidence included high-heat internal injuries and the absence of external burn marks on the baby, Paris Talley.

Arnold was arrested soon after the baby's death in August 2005, then was released while authorities investigated further. Betz said the case was difficult because "there is not a lot of scientific research and data on the effect of microwaves on human beings."

The death was ruled a homicide caused by hyperthermia, or high body temperature. The absence of external burns ruled out an open flame, scalding water or a heating pad as the cause, Betz said.

Arnold's lawyer, Jon Paul Rion, said his client had nothing to do with her child's death and was stunned when investigators told her that a microwave might have been involved. (Watch the mother's lawyer insist she's innocent Video)

"China -- as a mother and a person -- was horrified that such an act could occur," Rion said.

The night before the baby was taken to the hospital, Arnold and the child's father went out for a short time and left Paris with a baby sitter, Rion said. The mother didn't sense anything out of the ordinary until the next morning, when the child was found unconscious, Rion said.

Arnold has three other children.

In 2000, a Virginia woman was sentenced to five years in prison for killing her month-old son in a microwave oven. Elizabeth Renee Otte claimed she had no memory of cramming her son in the microwave and turning on the appliance in 1999.

Experts said that Otte suffered from epilepsy and that her seizures were followed by blackouts.

OMG!!
But how do the authorities know for certain?
It's never justice when the evidence is circumstantial. Though people are jailed in this way all the time. Yet another reason why I've stated that the judicial system doesn't work.

Re: Mom charged with baby's microwave death

This is a classic case of someone not reading the manual before using an appliance. Everybody knows that babies should be cooked slowly, on the defrost setting, to ensure the meat is cooked through to the centre.

The thought of putting any living thing in a microwave is totally disgusting but I did snicker at that post (I tried not to I swear).

Yeh, it is hard to tell though obviously because they cannot be sure the baby was microwaved. Very VERY disturbing thought though, babies, animals etc in microwaves. Scary.

Re: Mom charged with baby's microwave death

Probably the mother is a Hulk fan and microwaved the kid in the vain hopes of giving him enhanced powers.

(Evidently, she's a dumbass: logic dictates 1st to microwave the cat. If succesful, proceed with the kid).

Re: Mom charged with baby's microwave death

I always thought it was bad enough when people did this to animals, but I never thought I'd hear of anyone doing it to a baby.

"I knew I had it in me. And I knew if I fought hard enough, and I kept fighting, even if I kept falling, I was going to get up and do it."

Re: Mom charged with baby's microwave death

At least she didn't froze the baby in the fridge. I reckon that would have been even worst.
