DAYTON, Ohio, Sept. 18 (UPI) — An Ohio woman convicted of killing her baby daughter in a microwave oven wants a fourth trial because of errors made in her last trial, her lawyer said.
China Arnold, 33, was convicted three times of killing her 28-day-old daughter, Paris Talley — in February 2008, September 2008 and May 2011.
She was sentenced to the death penalty on her first conviction and to life in prison on the subsequent two convictions.
Tuesday attorney Christopher Thompson requested a fourth trial in Ohio’s Second District Court of Appeals because he said five errors were made in her case, the Dayton Daily News reported. He requested a trial without the chance of the death penalty.
