DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — A woman convicted of killing her month-old baby daughter in a microwave oven was spared the death penalty and sentenced Friday to life in prison without parole.

Montgomery County Common Pleas Judge Mary Wiseman sentenced China Arnold, 31, of Dayton, Ohio, who psychologists testified showed no signs of serious mental illness. Arnold declined to make a statement during her sentencing.

I saw a criminologist on TV last night talk about the New Hampshire case and his words were “Juries don't like to execute women.”

“Juries don't like to execute women.”

Where's the ACLU? Seems to me misandrous application of the death penalty is a violation of equal protection. If they can argue sentencing disparities of whites vs blacks, they can argue gender bias.

Or she escaped the death penalty because she was a liberal full of compassion and love for the OTHER:

Note that the Chicago Tribune did not include a picture of this beast.

Defense attorney Kevin Lennen said that death or life in prison would be a tough penalty, but death should go only to the worst offenders. He pointed to evidence that Arnold was drunk at the time of the baby's death.

Another example why lawyers are hated.

This was her third trial. First was a hung jury, second was conviction but thrown out for prosecutorial misconduct.

Maybe Holder will help her out this time.

Yeah, and we get stuck watching the Caysee (sp) Anthony case where she killed her daughter and went out dancing while this other killer..come on, cooking your daughter in a microwave oven!!, gets barely any publicity. Left unsaid is that the microwave cooker is black. The dancing killer is white...just saying...And yes she should be microwaved to death.

Chain this bitch to the tow hitch of my truck, I’ll drag her over a gravel road slow enough to keep her alive for a few miles.

My guess would be that the jury was made up of others the same shade as she was and they didn’t want to kill her. I’d have like to see them sentance her to the microwave instead now I get to pay for her sorry @$$ forever here in Ohio. :( Hopefully some of tthe other inmates will have a problem with what she did and her life from now on will be a living h*ll.

Why would someone think being drunk would be an excuse? IMHO, it makes it worse.

If the sentencing is "for the rest of your natural life", then why are they afforded medical care to prolong said life?

The “woman” is unspeakably evil.
The Court shares in her evil.

This is a classic case in which the murderer should be publicly executed in a manner that is similar to the pain, duration, and horrific nature of the crime committed.

Remember the film “Star Chamber”? Well there should be a vigilante “Hammurabi Code” organization to abduct convicted perps and kill them in the same manner as they themselves murdered. She should be cooked alive.

“Spared” ???

Personally, I’d rather die than spend life in prison.

Of course, this does give her some time to repent before she meets the real Judge.

I think I could find a fiver if someone wants to go in with me to send her a millstone.
