A mother has been sentenced to life in prison for killing her one-month-old daughter by putting her in the microwave. Ka Yang, 34, was found guilty in November of first degree murder and assault on a child after baby Mirabelle Thao-Lo was found dead at the family home in Sacremento, California, in March 2011.
Evidence presented at her trial revealed the baby girl was discovered with burns covering 60% of her body, including radiation burns, but her hair and clothing were not singed. A dummy was found in the microwave. The infant is believed to have been put inside the cooker for between two and a half and five minutes.
After the inconsistencies in her story were pointed out Yang finally admitted she had lied, and suggested she had a split personality. Married Yang, who has three other children, was sentenced to 26 years to life in prison on Friday, KCRA reported.
I was watching the news replay and i could not believe it, when she pubblicly admitted to microwavened the innocent child to death. Goodness, some people seek the ends of the earth for a child, trust me, i am begining to have doubt about the much talked about pains during child’s birth.
