SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – A Sacramento woman convicted of killing her own child by microwaving her has been sentenced to life in prison.
Friday, the Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office announced that Yang had been given a sentence of 26 years to life in prison.
Investigators said Mirabelle suffered burns to 80 percent of her body – some burns as deep as her internal organs. It is believed the baby was in the microwave for 2 to 5 minutes.
Yang claims she had a seizure and blacked out the day she killed her daughter. Yang spoke to CBS13 in 2012, saying: “I never thought that with my seizure I will lose my little girl,” Yang said.
