Ka YAngSACRAMENTO, CA — Four years ago we reported on 34-year-old Ka Yang, the woman who cooked her infant daughter to death inside a microwave. On Friday, a jury found her guilty of first-degree murder.

In March of 2011, Yang’s daughter was found dead in her home. Yang told investigators that she was holding her baby when she had a seizure and passed out. When she woke up she said she found her infant dead on the ground next to a space heater.

What her version of events didn’t explain was why the baby girl suffered fourth degree burns from head-to-toe, yet her hair and pajamas were not singed. It also didn’t explain why the baby’s pacifier was in the microwave.

After a three month investigation, investigators determined that Yang had placed the infant in the microwave and cooked her for for 2-and-a-half to 5 minutes. Yang was arrested and charged with one count of murder and one count of assault leading to the death of a child under age 8.

During her trial, Yang’s attorney admitted her client put the girl in the microwave, but did so unknowingly during an epileptic episode. This same defense was used by Virginia Martinez in 1999, a woman who claimed she was having a seizure when she confused her 5-week-old with a bottle of milk when she cooked him to death in a mocrowave.

That defense worked for Martinez, who was sentenced to five years in prison, but Yang’s jury didn’t buy it – they found Yang guilty on both charges. She will be looking at 26 years to life in prison when she is sentenced in December.

Yang is the third person we’ve covered on the site who has been accused or convicted of cooking their kid in a microwave. China Arnold was found guilty of cooking 4-week-old Paris Talley in a microwave and Joshua Mauldin was accused of placing 2-month-old Ana Mauldin inside a motel room microwave and turning it on for 10 seconds.
