A mother was arrested on suspicion of murdering her newborn daughter by putting the baby in a microwave oven.
China Arnold, 26, was jailed Monday on a charge of aggravated murder, more than a year after she brought her dead month-old baby to a hospital.
“We have reason to believe, and we have some forensic evidence that is consistent with our belief, that a microwave oven was used in this death,” said Ken Betz, director of the Montgomery County coroner’s office.
Don’t tell me; post-natal depression made her do it. Or PMS. Or a man. Either way, if convicted, she probably won’t serve much time anyway.
After all, just look at the sickening case of Elizabeth Renee Otte referenced in the article, who got a mere five-years for cooking her baby son to death in a microwave (and was believed when she said she couldn’t remember doing it. Yeah, because it’s one of those little things you always forget isn’t it? Like where you put your car keys, what your PIN number is, whether that thing you put in the microwave and cooked on maximum for ten-minutes was a lasagne or your screaming baby, etc.)
Now wonder women are increasingly violent, offensive and badly-behaved when, whilst us men can potentially get life for “rape” just because a woman we had consensual sex with changed her mind afterwards and claimed she was a bit drunk at the time, women, on the other hand, can cook babies and get less than half-a-decade imprisonment.

Cooking a baby, and even a living animal in microwave is totally disgusting. I don’t think that she won’t serve much time if it is proved that she did it.

Man, how I hate to hear about kids suffering in the hands of fucked up people – principly when that fucked up person is a women that will eat the tax-payers money in a cozy cell for a less, less years than she deserves.

I read about this on Chaos Forums just a few minutes ago and must say that it is horrible that someone could even consider doing something like this. I’m going to have to agree with nat in that I hope that once they prove this heinous crime she gets what’s coming to her.

Jeez that is sickening man. I guess that’s the modern liberated women is it? And you don’t have to have sex with a woman, she can just cry rape anyway and screw an innocent man over. Pun intended. I can’t believe it! Microwave!

Arnold’s lawyer, Jon Paul Rion, said his client had nothing to do with her child’s death and was stunned when investigators told her that a microwave might have been involved. (Watch the mother weep during her court hearing Video)
“China — as a mother and a person — was horrified that such an act could occur,” Rion said.
The night before the baby was taken to the hospital, Arnold and the child’s father went out for a short time and left Paris with a baby sitter, Rion said. The mother didn’t sense anything out of the ordinary until the next morning, when the child was found unconscious, Rion said.
It can very well be the baby sitter. She is innocent until proven guilty. Whoever it was he or she should be microwaved, too.

Duncan, please comment that, too:
Battered women who are provoked into killing violent partners are likely to be convicted of a new offence of second-degree murder under proposals published this afternoon by the Government’s law reform advisers.

I’m a lady and I have to agree with you on the rape issue. Of course, there are clear-cut cases of men physically forcing sex on women. But increasingly rape laws and being abused by women who want to have their cake and eat it too. Something should be done, but I’m not quite sure what. Hmmm.

Increasingly in the US we are seeing the Women engage in the most depraved abuse, torture, and murder of their children. We are now seeing this on a weekly basis. Another Mother murdering her Child or children. It does not even shock anymore.
We are now accustomed to seeing Mothers murder several of their children, especially their boys. It is male hatred of defenseless Males.

Good point – it seems these vicious baby-murders always involve MALE, but not FEMALE babies…hmmmm…

Just reported today from Florida another Mother slashed the throat and killed her two year old Son. I live in Texas the Lone Star State. Where we have had Mothers chop off their 8 month old Daughter’s Arms with a Butcher Knife. Darlee Routier who slashed the throats of her two sons in Rowlett. Andrea Yates who drowned her 5 children in Houston. Another Mother in East Texas who bashed in the skulls of her three Sons.
In 2001 we had probably a half dozen Babies left in Cars in the Summer Heat to die of dehydration and Heat Stroke. It gets to be 120 degrees Fahrenheit in the Summer Sun here.
I am sad to report murdering Children has become so commonplace its almost a sport now.

That case is a little bit different considering that she had a seizure and then blacked out for 50 minutes or maybe even more. It is not like she just pulled that excuse out of no where considering there were records of it and she had 50 prior to that episode. Unlike China who put her child in a microwave with a group of people and then a year later admitted it and thought that she would get away with it. Rest assured she will probably end up getting the death penalty whch she deserves.

What is wrong with people today. Are they so with out compasion that its making people like me sick. I am not use to the idea of this being normal or common place. I find that women are just as bad as men or even worse. I am a mother of a 13 year old girl and thinking about that makes me sad and sick to my stomach.
Something has to be done to protect children even when it comes to protecting them from mothers.
