Woman Who Microwaved Baby Files Fourth Appeal

An Ohio woman convicted of mµrdering her new born daughter by placing her in a microwave has filed a motion for a new trial.

China Arnold, 33, has had three trials since the August 2005 slaying of Paris Talley, her 28-day-old baby girl. On Tuesday, China’s Attorney Christopher Thompson claimed multiple errors were made in China’s case, in which there are now calls for another trial. Attorney Thompson and Arnold decided to put in the request to the Ohio’s Second District Court of Appeals.

In February 2008, Arnold’s first trial ended in a mistrial, but seven months later, Arnold was was convicted.

That conviction was overturned after an appeals court found that there were errors in Arnold’s initial trial.

Arnold was arrested on the charge of aggravated mµrder in May 2011 and sentenced to life in prison.

The gruesome tale of events that led to little Paris’ death are documented in court papers.

According to court documents, Arnold and her boyfriend were arguing in a Montgomery County home about who Paris’ father was. The altercation completely went south when Arnold threw her new born baby into the microwave over and pressed start.

Paris died after her body temperature reached between 107 to 108 degrees Fahrenheit.

She suffered from high-heat, which caused internal injuries, but none of the  burns were external according to medical experts.

Montgomery County prosecutor Daniel Brandt said that Arnold admitted to ending her baby’s life in a police conducted interview.

” ‘I killed my baby.’ Those were the words of the defendant,” said Brandt.

“I wrapped her up. I put her in the microwave. I turned the microwave on and I went outside. She fit right in,” repeated Brandt as she told Arnold’s chilling words to the jury.

Arnold was so intoxicated, she blacked out when Paris died, according to Arnold’s attorney from her first trial, John Paul Rion.

Rion also claimed that witnesses at the crime scene fabricated their stories about what they saw happen to Paris.

Arnold’s new attorney plans on requesting a trial without in hopes that his client can avoid the de@th penalty.

The appeals court has yet rule on  the motion.

    I was in jail 15yrs ago with a bitch that did the same thing only she fed it to her husband when he found out he was eating his own child he passed out and never spoke again even though we are never to judge I cant help it for someone who cant have kids thats unbearable to take. The good part about this story is the gaurds assisted the inmates in driving her crazy and the bitch hung herself in her cell and thats probably whats gonnahappen with her so with that being sai”DIE BITCHES AND BURN IN HELL”!!!!

    Absolutely insane to do such a thing! Why not put the new born baby up for adoption, and super glue ur legs closed? I guess that’s too much like right! No clue why dead beat fathers and mothers have sex unprotected, bring kids in this world for tax payers to assist them. This is beyond sickening.

    I don’t understand any woman that would hurt her child because she can’t have the father and really that was what it was about! Put her rear end under the jail and leave her there for the rest of her life! If it were legal, I would say put her butt in an industrial oven and turn it up to 500 and walk away as she did.
