California mum sentenced in killing of infant in microwave

A 34 year old woman has been sentenced to life in prison over the microwave-oven death of her one-month-old daughter.

Ka Yang, 34, was found guilty in November of first-degree murder in the child’s death.

According to evidence presented in court, Yang was alone with her daughter Marabelle Thao-Lo in March 2011 for about 11 minutes. During that time, Yang put Marabelle in the microwave for 2-and-a-half to 5 minutes.

The baby girl suffered what authorities said were extensive thermal injuries.

Yang, who is married and has three other children, initially told investigators that she blacked out while working on the computer with Mirabelle in her arms and woke up on the ground with the baby injured next to a space heater, according to an affidavit in the case written by Sacramento Police Detective Thomas Shrum.

Although she had a history of seizures, paramedics did not find her to be disoriented when they arrived, according to the affidavit.

When detectives pointed out inconsistencies in her story, Yang later acknowledged she lied and said she might have a split personality, the affidavit said.

Investigators who arrived at the scene found the girl burned from head-to-toe and her pacifier in the microwave, but her pajamas and hair were not singed, according to the affidavit.

    1. I hope some prisoner torches her in her cell. That way she can burn in hell before she costs the tax payer a million dollars a year to house the freak.
