A mother who murdered her one-month-old daughter by burning
her to death in a microwave oven has been sentenced to life in prison without

failed to reach a consensus.

Prosecutors said Arnold, who maintains she is innocent, killed her daughter
in 2005 after a fight with her boyfriend.

Judge Mary Wiseman said the crime was “shocking and utterly abhorrent for a

mistrial when new witnesses came forward.

Arnold “has faith in the system, she is strong and will continue to fight
until her innocence is proven”, said her lawyer Jon Paul Rion.
