Mother Gets Life In Prison For Killing Her Child In Microwave

Dayton, Ohio (AP) -- A Dayton, Ohio, mother who burned her baby daughter to death in a microwave oven has been sentenced life in prison without the chance for parole.

Twenty-eight-year-old China Arnold opted to watch her sentencing from a side room on a monitor Monday.

Montgomery Ccounty Common Pleas Judge Mary Wiseman rejected Defense Attorneys' request 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.

The jury convicted Arnold of aggravated murder in the 2005 death of month-old Paris Talley.

It was Arnold's second trial; the first ended in a mistrial when new witnesses surfaced.

Defense Attorney Jon Paul Rion has asked for a third trial, saying a former cellmate who said Arnold confessed has now changed her story.
