Mother Kills Baby In Microwave

( 4UMF NEWS ) Mother Kills Baby In Microwave:

A mother will stand trial on charges of killing her seven-week-old daughter by placing her in a microwave oven and letting her burn to death for two minutes.

As well as the murder accusation against Ka Yang, 30, from California, Sacramento County Superior Court Judge Eugene Balanon also found enough evidence to support a special allegation that she tortured her daughter, Mirabelle.

Prosecutors ruled out the death penalty, but Yang faces life in prison without the possibility of parole if convicted of the murder of her child.

The mother-of-four has been held since June after investigators determined her baby died of ‘extensive thermal injuries’ after being placed in a microwave on March 17.

Mirabelle was jut seven-weeks-old when she was placed in a microwave by her mother
A pathologist testified during Tuesday’s hearing that the radiation from the microwave essentially cooked the child’s stomach and small intestine.

Yang’s defense attorney, Linda Parisi said that it was due to her client’s history of seizures – which she has been suffering from for more than six years – that made her put her own baby in the microwave.

She will argue during the murder trial that Yang was in the middle of a seizure and did not know what she was doing. At the time, Yang claimed she ‘had a seizure and did not know what happened after that’.
