Baby ‘cooked’ in microwave

JURORS in a woman’s third trial found her guilty yesterday of burning her baby daughter to death in a microwave oven.

China Arnold, 31, was convicted in Dayton, Ohio of aggravated murder for the death of 28-day-old Paris Talley in August 2005.

Arnold could receive the death penalty. The sentencing phase will begin on Monday.

Arnold’s first trial ended in a mistrial. She was found guilty in the second trial, but that conviction was reversed last year.

Prosecutors said that Arnold intentionally put the baby in the microwave after a fight with her boyfriend.
