Mother convicted of microwaving baby

DAYTON, Ohio, Aug. 30 (UPI) -- An Ohio woman has been convicted of killing her infant daughter in a microwave oven.

The trial of China Arnold, 28, of Dayton now enters the sentencing phase for the August 2005 death of her 28-day-old daughter, Paris Talley, the Dayton Daily News reported Friday.

Arnold reportedly showed little emotion when the jury's verdict was read less than 24 hours after the panel began its deliberations. But she began sobbing, along with several supporters, as deputies led her out of the courtroom.

The second phase of the trial, Arnold's second after the first ended in mistrial, gets started Tuesday.

Montgomery County Common Pleas Judge Mary Wiseman will eventually sentence Arnold, but cannot send her to death row without a jury recommendation. However, Wiseman could reject a death recommendation and instead impose a prison sentence.
