This is a follow-up to a story where a mother cooked her month-old baby girl in the microwave.

The jury on Wednesday said it couldn't decide whether to recommend the death penalty or life in prison for 28-year-old China Arnold.

Since the jury is not recommending the death penalty, it cannot be imposed.

Judge Mary Wiseman, who discharged the jury, is limited to sentencing Arnold to life in prison without parole, life without parole for at least 30 years, or life without parole for at least
25 years.

Wiseman plans to impose her sentence on Monday.

The jury on Friday found Arnold guilty of aggravated murder.

I still like RNJ's comment he made on an earlier blog of mine about what he would do to this so-called-mother. If anything, she should have been given the death penalty. If a man and/or father did this, you would almost bet he would have received the death penalty. Why the double standards?

What was Arnold's plea? Not guilty, not guilty by reason of insanity? What was her defense?

I only caught a blurb about the story so I'll respond in general terms. If she pleaded insanity and had sufficient proof, then I would say lock her up in an asylum and lose the key. If not, then fry her ass. Regardless, I doubt she can be rehabilitated so she would present a further danger to society. So, let's not let her go free. Ever.

OK, I'm in "cheap bastard" mode. Which is cheaper, keeping her in prison for the next 40 - 60 years or paying for the multiple appeals that come with the death penalty. Whichever is cheaper these days, I say, let's run with it.

I am pro death penalty and make no bones about it. The only reason it isn't a deterrent is because states prolong it for so many years or never do it at all. I believe in trials and limited appeals....then DO IT for gaudsake when those appeals are exhausted. Geez!

Unless this woman is swinging-from-the-trees-babbling-crazy there is no punishment harsh enough to fit this crime.

If I'm not mistaken the reason she did it was what...the boyfriend wouldn't change a diaper or something equally stupid? Too bad she won't fit in a microwave....just sayin'......maybe punishments should fit the crimes.

A Microwave cooks from the inside out. And I think she should be put to death in the same way. Death by Microwave.

i retract my previous plan of killing her. Let her sit in prison for a few years. Eventually she'll be in general population and those bitches will not only kill her, but they'll torture her first. Maybe she'll get just a little taste of what she gave to her own flesh n blood. Either way the cunt is gonna die....let's just hope it's as slow and painful as humanly possible for her to take until it comes
