Microwave baby mum jailed

Full Article:

A WOMAN has been sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole for burning her baby daughter to death in a microwave after a row with her boyfriend.
Common Pleas Judge Mary Wiseman lashed out at 28-year-old China Arnold, who chose to watch her sentencing from a side room on a TV screen.
Judge Wiseman said: "No adjectives exist to adequately describe this heinous atrocity.
"This act is shocking and utterly abhorrent for a civilised society."
The Judge rejected a plea by Arnold's attorneys for a minimum sentence of life in prison with the chance of parole after 25 years.
A jury last week spared Arnold the death penalty when it could not reach a consensus.
