China Arnold was sentenced to life in prison without the chance of parole today for killing her baby. She was not in the courtroom when Common Pleas Judge Mary Wiseman handed down the sentence.
Dayton, Ohio--- China Arnold, 28 put her month-old baby daughter in a microwave oven in August of 2005 after a fight with her boyfriend.
Paris Tally was put in the microwave after a fight about if the boyfriend was the baby's biological father.
This was Arnold's second trial. The jury last week spared her the death penalty when they couldn't agree on the punishment.
Arnold's attorneys asked for a minimum sentence of life in prison with the chance of parole after 25 years.
Common Pleas Judge Mary Wiseman rejected the plea and sentenced her to life in prison with no chance of parole.
Arnold's defense attorney Jon Paul Rion has asked for a third trial he said a former cellmate who said Arnold confessed has now changed her story.
