China Arnold put her newborn in a microwave and murdered it because it wouldn't stop crying.

The baby died.

She was tried and found guilty.

She appealed, and was found guilty again.

She appealed and was ordered to have a new trial.

She was found guilty again.

Eyewitnesses saw the murder occur at a party.

There is a witness to which she confessed the murder while in jail.

The Dayton Daily Fishwrap ... the local <span style='font-size: 11pt'>EEEVILLL</span> Fox radio affiliate ... the local NAACP ... the Dayton Urban League ... the local NOW office ... the local Planned Parenthood office ... the former mayor, who happens to be a black female democrook ... essentially every moonbat crazy leftist group in town.

This has become an extremely divisive issue locally.

Around 75% of the population say enough is enough and let's get on with sentencing.

OTOH, the nutty 25% are continuing with the foolish belief that if a black female is convicted ... even when it was three times by majority black juries ... it simply must be racist.

This comes on the hells of a local mosque, and it's Imam, being raided for illegal gun sales, trafficking in illegal food stamps, trafficking in counterfeit cigarettes, trafficking in cocaine, trafficking in counterfeit NIKE apparel, selling expired food in his convenience store, and money laundering ... yet the Dayton Daily Fishwrap runs a front page article on how he was a pillar of the community.

Oh, and the reason that he is being prosecuted is racism of course.

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted By: Dayton Daily Fishwrap</div><div class="ubbcode-body">DAYTON — Family, friends and supporters of China Arnold gathered Wednesday at Omega Baptist Church to alert the community to what they consider an unjust trial.

On Friday, Arnold, 31, was convicted of aggravated murder in the 2005 death of her 28-day-old daughter, Paris Talley, who was burned in a microwave oven. The sentencing phase of Arnold’s third trial is to resume today, and the jurors will be asked to consider if she deserves the death penalty.

Wednesday’s rally, which brought out about 50 people, was <span style='font-size: 11pt'>organized by the Southern Christian Leadership Conference and led by Bishop Richard Cox, president of the organization and a longtime Arnold family friend.</span>

<span style='font-size: 14pt'>He called her three trials “the most disgusting piece of garbage,”</span> <span style='font-size: 11pt'>while SCLC Chairman Keith Lander said,</span> <span style='font-size: 14pt'>“if China Arnold was white, she would be sitting at home right now.”</span>

They believe her sentencing is the product of racism and that she is innocent.

“Too many people in this city don’t know the truth,” said Cox, noting he also believes Arnold was intimidated by the prosecution. ...</div></div>

What a leftist rag. (http://www.daytondailynews.com/news/crime/supporters-of-china-arnold-gather-for-rally-prepare-for-another-tomorrow-1163569.html)

And he's right, because the Dayton Daily Fishwrap buries the truth:

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">DAYTON, Ohio — A woman who shared a jail cell with a mother accused of killing her baby by burning her in a microwave oven told a jury Thursday that<span style='font-size: 11pt'> the mom confessed to the crime, saying the month-old girl "fit right in" the oven.</span>

Linda Williams testified that she developed a sexual relationship with defendant China Arnold when the two were cellmates in the Montgomery County Jail in March and that Arnold confided in her about what happened to her baby.

She said Arnold feared her boyfriend believed he wasn't the father of the child and was going to leave her.
<span style='font-size: 14pt'>"She said she put the baby into the microwave and started it and left the house,"</span> Williams said.

Williams said she asked Arnold how she got the child into the oven.

<span style='font-size: 14pt'>"She said she fit right in,"</span> Williams said. ...

<span style='font-size: 11pt'>"It was so heinous to think of that, that I couldn't convince myself it was a real possibility," Uptegrove said.
He said DNA recovered from the ceiling of the oven matched that of the baby.</span>

During the opening statement by Assistant Montgomery County Prosecutor Daniel Brandt, a photo of the burned baby was flashed on a screen for the 12-member jury to see. Arnold sat quietly, occasionally jotting notes on a yellow legal pad.

Brandt said Arnold killed the child after arguing with her boyfriend over whether they had been faithful to each other.

<span style='font-size: 17pt'>When the couple brought the baby to the hospital, Brandt said, Arnold exclaimed: "'I killed my baby. I killed my baby."'</span>

Brandt said <span style='font-size: 11pt'>Arnold later told police it never would have happened had she not gotten so drunk. He said Arnold, who has been in jail since she was charged in November 2006, told Williams she had killed the baby in the microwave and other inmates that she hadn't meant to do it.</span> ...

He testified he was at a neighbor's apartment until about 5:30 or 6 AM August 30th, came home, fell asleep, and woke up just before 7:00. He says the baby was cold and stiff.

“She just kept saying she didn’t know she killed her baby… (who did she say that to)… to me,” said Talley. The two broke up, but still saw one another occasionally. He testified Arnold later said, “If I wasn’t out cheating on her, her baby would still be alive.” ... </div></div>

If China was white, she would be at home and free because she would know that a microwave is not the best place to put a baby. A white mother would know that you are supposed to warm the milk before the baby drinks it.

I do wonder how much it will finally cost for due process to work itself out on someone who was obviously guilty.

The taxpayer has hired the area's highest paid criminal attorney for 6 years now.

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body"> Arnold’s first trial ended in February 2008 in a mistrial. In the second, she was convicted of all charges and sentenced to life without parole. The Ohio Second District Court of Appeals reversed the conviction last fall. </div></div>

Well now that seems a little different from the story you told.

A 'mistrial' isn't a guilty conviction, nor does one 'appeal' a mistrial. The prosecutor either brings the charges again in another trial or doesn't. Apparently, he/she did.

Now, given her conviction was evidently reversed, I don't see how she can be tried again unless the charges have been changed. (There's this thing called no double jeopardy.) So most likely, this third bite at the apple for the prosecution is a changed charge.

Your take on this is so whacked that it is fairly impossible to know what's really going on in this situation, and having all counsel gagged is also unhelpful in determining what people are SAYING is going on in this situation.

Your lack of knowledge of the law, and this case, would be embarrassing to you ... if you were capable of shame.

The stories are always so more convincing the way you tell them (than the way they are).

But to be fair, perhaps you can explain how you were correct to say a mistrial was a conviction? Do you mean that the necessary unanimous vote for conviction was majority voted guilty (although not achieving unanimity)? If so, perhaps you lack knowledge of the law? (Hint: even a 11-1 guilty vote isn't a conviction, as that pesky unanimity is required.)

The circumstances leading to the overturning of the conviction are here. (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/40030010/ns/us_news-crime_and_courts/t/conviction-overturned-microwave-baby-death/)

And it's clear that it is these circumstances that lead to the charge that this is a racist prosecution. Which may or may not be true, but then you have to come up with another reason that this person's right to a fair trial was not granted her, by apparent prosecutorial animus of some kind, if not racism, per se.

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body"> The Dayton-based appeals court ruled there was prosecutorial misconduct and that the trial court erred in not allowing a material witness for the defense to testify.

Linda Williams, a cellmate of Arnold and main witness for the state in the first trial, came forward after Arnold's conviction and said she had lied to the jury when she said Arnold confessed that she put her daughter in the microwave oven. Williams failed to appear at the second trial, and the court allowed the prosecution to play a videotape of her earlier trial testimony implicating Arnold.

In the second trial, the appeals court said, the lower court denied the defendant "her right to a fair trial when the court permitted the state to introduce in evidence Williams' testimony from the first trial." The appeals court cited prior case law saying a fair trial demands that the accused be tried on "evidence produced in open court by witnesses who can be confronted, cross-examined and rebutted."

The appeals court found prosecutorial misconduct in the prosecutors' failure in the first trial to provide the defense with timely notice of Williams' address. The limited opportunity prosecutors allowed the defense to interview Williams — for only few minutes before her trial testimony — denied an adequate opportunity for preparation for cross-examination of Williams, the appeals court said.

As a result, the defendant was denied "the right of prior confrontation" as required when former testimony of a hearsay witness is admitted in evidence," the court said.

The state will ask the court to reconsider given facts in the record showing the defense had "more than ample opportunity" to prepare for Williams' examination and that Arnold "was provided a fair trial," according to a statement from Prosecutor Mathias Heck Jr.'s office.

"There were no surprises in the witness' trial testimony, and there was no ambush," the statement said.

The appeals court also said the trial court erred in not allowing the defense to introduce evidence at the second trial from a new witness, whose statements the defense contended contradicted Williams' testimony, the ruling said. The new witness, Kyra Woods, would have testified to the jury that Williams told her that Arnold never confessed to her that she put the baby in the microwave, defense attorney Jon Paul Rion said.

Woods was a cellmate of Williams after Williams left the cell she shared with Arnold. </div></div>
