Infant May Have Been Killed In Microwave

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) - A woman has been charged in the death of her infant daughter, who authorities believe might have been put in a microwave oven.

Dayton police say China Arnold was arrested at her home yesterday on a charge of aggravated murder. Her month-old daughter, Paris Talley, died in August 2005.

Ken Betz, director of the Montgomery County coroner's office, says authorities have scientific evidence to support that a microwave oven might have been involved in the death.

Police say the baby was dead when Arnold brought her to Children's Medical Center last year. The death was ruled a homicide caused by hyperthermia, or high body temperature, due to thermal injury.
