Microwave murder conviction overturned
Some of you may remember the name China Arnold. She’s an Ohio Breeder who was convicted and sentenced to life for allegedly killing her own daughter, 28-day-old Paris Talley, by cooking her in a microwave. I have to use allegedly and convicted in the same sentence now because the conviction has been overturned due to prosecutorial misconduct. It seems they wouldn’t allow a witness to testify and kept Arnold from seeing her lawyer.
In what should have been a slam dunk case the prosecutors messed it up this time. Arnold’s defense was that she could have not possibly put her baby in the microwave because she was too drunk. Hell, I’ve been plenty drunk before in my life and I was still able to press a few buttons to get the microwave to work, Then again I was just making some nachos and not throwing my own flesh in blood in there after arguing with my significant other about the paternity of the baby.
If she walks it would be one of the biggest travesties of justice.
Thanks to jhilhan for the tip in the OT.
