Mother Shows No Remorse For Microwaving Baby

A Woman was today sentenced to life in prison without the chance for parole for burning her baby daughter to death in a microwave after fighting with her boyfriend.
Judge Mary Wiseman lashed out at 28-year-old China Arnold, who opted to watch her sentencing from a side room on a monitor.
"No adjectives exist to adequately describe this heinous atrocity," Wiseman said.
"This act is shocking and utterly abhorrent for a civilised society."
The judge rejected a plea by Arnold's lawyers 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 couldn't reach a consensus.
"I am innocent of these charges," Arnold said in a statement read by her lawyer Jon Paul Rion.
Arnold was convicted on August 29 of aggravated murder in the death of month-old Paris Talley in 2005.
Prosecutors said she intentionally put her baby in the microwave after a fight with her boyfriend.
The couple had argued over whether the boyfriend was the biological father.
It was Arnold's second trial. Her first ended in a mistrial when new witnesses surfaced.
Rion has asked for a third trial, saying a former cellmate who said Arnold confessed has now changed her story.
Rion said he'd also found additional witnesses who point to someone else being responsible for killing the baby.
The judge hasn't ruled on the motion for a new trial.
Rion said Arnold loved her baby "with all of her heart and more" and regrets drinking the night of her baby's death to the point of not remembering what happened.
Prosecutor David Franceschelli told Wiseman that Arnold has shown no genuine remorse.
