US mum gets life sentence for cooking her baby girl in a microwave
A 34-YEAR-OLD woman has been sentenced to life in prison over the microwave-oven death of her one-month-old daughter.
A California judge on Friday imposed the 26 years to life sentence on Ka Yang.
She was convicted of first-degree murder and assault for putting Mirabelle Thao-Lo in a microwave oven for up to five minutes in 2011.

Prosecutors say the child sustained fatal thermal injuries.
Investigators found the infant’s pacifier in the microwave at their Sacramento-area home.
Yang’s lawyer says her client had an epileptic seizure and didn’t know what she was doing.

She has a history of seizures, but paramedics say she wasn’t disoriented when they arrived.
She told investigators she blacked out and awoke to find the baby injured next to a space heater.
Yang has three other children.
