Mother Gets Life in Prison for Microwaving Baby Daughter to Death

A mother has been sentenced to life in prison after microwaving her baby to death.

Ka Yang, 34, was convicted of first-degree murder and assault after putting one-month-old Mirabelle
Thao-Lo in the appliance for up to five minutes in 2011.
Prosecutors said the child had fatal thermal injuries that would have been severely painful to endure. The radiation would have penetrated her organs.

Investigators found the infant’s pacifier in the microwave at their home in Sacramento, California.
Yang’s attorney said her client had an epileptic seizure and didn’t know what she was doing but paramedics said she wasn’t disoriented when they arrived.
She told investigators she blacked out and awoke to find the baby injured next to a space heater.
Yang has three other children.
A California judge imposed the 26-years-to-life sentence yesterday.
