Sacramento Mother Arrested After Baby Dies in Microwave
This could be the most disturbing and sad story I’ve read recently.
A Sacramento, California woman was arrested on Tuesday for allegedly microwaving her 6-week-old daughter, Mirabelle Thao-Lo, to death. The mother, Ka Yang, was arrested without incident and is currently being held in Sacramento County Jail.
Stories like this just tug at my heart, knowing that I have two kids. Never quite understood the reasoning behind stories like this. Those of you who follow the Casey/Caylee Anthony story can probably relate if you’ve followed it from the beginning.
From the Associated Press:
Ka Yang was being held without bail in Sacramento County Jail on suspicion of murder and assault resulting in the death of a child.
She was arrested three months after her otherwise healthy 6-week-old daughter, Mirabelle Thao-Lo, was found dead in the family home on March 17.
Police described the child as suffering “extensive thermal injuries.” Officer Laura Peck said the arrest took so long because investigators had to pinpoint what they believe is the cause of death by looking for other cases involving similar injuries.
They found three in the U.S., all after children were burned in a microwave: in Dayton, Ohio; Galveston, Texas; and New Kent County, Va.
