Microwave killer spared death

Full Article:

A MUM convicted of murdering her baby daughter by microwaving her, has been spared the death penalty after a jury could not reach a unanimous decision.
Ohio mum China Arnold was accused of killing month-old tot Paris Talley in 2005.
A judge declared a mistrial in February, and the retrial began on August 18.
The jury found the 28-year-old guilty last week of aggravated murder.
The defence had argued that Arnold was drunk when the incident took place and argued she had no motive to kill her child.
However, prosecutors called the crime “heinous” and argued for the death penalty.
After about five hours of deliberations, the jury was unable to decide whether to recommend the death penalty or life in prison.
