PARK HILLS, MO – Police have arrested a couple after they were accused of putting their 4-month-old son inside a microwave, then turning it on.

Police were called after the baby was brought to a hospital for a rash on his face.

Doctors quickly discovered that the rash was actually a second-degree burn, and that the baby was suffering from a skull fracture and a brain injury.

The baby’s parents, Derick Boyce-Slezak and Mikala Boyce-Slezak, both 22, were arrested and charged with felony abuse or neglect of a child.

During a Monday hearing, Mikala said the burn were caused by someone cleaning the infant’s face with a towel that contained a cleaning chemical.

She pleaded the Fifth Amendment when asked about the baby’s other injuries. Derek didn’t testify at all.

However, a social services agent did testify at the hearing. She said that Mikala told her that the head injury was probably the result of Derek dropping the baby while imitating something he saw on a television commercial.

Even more shocking, she told the worker she believed Derek had put the baby in the microwave then turned it on “for a short period of time.”

Derek and Mikala are both being held in the St.…

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.…

zombie guitarGRANTS, NEW MEXICO – Damon Perry admitted to beating his friend to death with a guitar after binge watching The Walking Dead, explaining that he did so because his friend was turning into a zombie.

Police were called to the Vista Mesa Villa Apartments on Thursday after someone called to report an intoxicated man with a knife. When officers arrived on the scene, they found two apartment complex maintenance men restraining 23-year-old Damon Perry outside an apartment.

Inside the apartment police would find 23-year-old Christopher Paquinan. He was unconscious and appeared to have been brutally beaten. Paquinan was pronounced dead at the scene by responding emergency personnel.

Perry told police that he was the one who beat his friend to death, but that it was self-defense. According to Perry, he and Paquinan were drinking “large amount of alcohol” while binge watching The Walking Dead on Netflix.

At some point, Perry says his friend “began to change into a zombie” and started biting him. In order to protect himself, and save his friend from a fate worse than death, Perry admits beating Paquinan his hands, feet, a guitar, a microwave and other household items.…

Thetford, UK – A 19-year-old British man has been placed in custody after admitting in court to microwaving a cat until it died. Jamie Blake was charged by Bury St Edmunds Magistrates’ Court with causing unnecessary suffering to a protected animal. The details leading up to the killing, though, are sure to exonerate him.

The cat, paradoxically named “Buddy,” was reportedly informally adopted by Blake while he was staying at a group home in Thetford, UK. Blake said he would keep the cat in his room for company at night, feeding it cheese and tuna. According to reports, Blake told the court that the cat then started talking to him.

Did it say “Thank you for the cheese and tuna!” you ask? Of course not. It’s a cat. It’s evil.

According to Blake, what Buddy did say is that his mother’s dead ex-partner was, in fact, injecting his mother with heroin. The defendant, who has been described as having ‘mental health issues,’ then reportedly started arguing with the cat. As anyone who has argued with a cat can tell you, this proved pointless.…

SACRAMENTO, CA — Because she does not have a criminal past, the woman accused of killing her infant by cooking her in a microwave will not face the death penalty.

Last year, 30-year-old Ka Yang was charged with torture and murder after her 6-week-old daughter,  Mirabelle, 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 beside her.

An autopsy would later show that the baby had died an absolutely horrible death, suffering from the kind of extensive thermal injuries one would suffer if cooked inside microwave like a really messed up Hot Pocket.

It would take three months for police to finish their investigation but once concluded Yang was charged with murder and had her three boys, who were all under the age of 7, removed from her home.

Yang and her family learned prosecutors would not seek the death penalty during a brief hearing on Friday.…

Torquay, UK – Gina Robins, 31, has been sentenced to jail for cooking the kitten of a former friend after asking the friend to use her microwave in February of this year. …and use it she did.

The incident was reportedly a result of a disagreement between the two friends from a few days earlier. Robins and her now ex-boyfriend, Matt Taylor, are said to have been having a ‘loud’ confrontation outside of their apartment building. The friend and neighbor, Sarah Knutton, called police. Robins complained that the call simply “made it worse.”

Despite the disagreement, Knutton did not refuse when Robins asked to use her microwave oven to heat a jar of baby food. It was reported that Robins returned to living room in Knutton’s apartment when Knutton heard a ‘loud popping noise’ and a ‘horrendous screeching’ as her black and tan 10-week-old kitten was cooked.

According to accounts, Robins feigned shock at the time of the incident. A day later, however, Robins sent Knutton a text message that read: “Remember the saying “what goes around comes around?” It has started already to bite you in the ass.…

SAN ANTONIO, TX — A man in Texas is facing criminal charges after his infant son was burned with hot cheese from inside a Pizza Pocket.

Police say 32-year-old Lionel Brown was arguing with the baby’s mother while microwaving a pizza pocket. The argument escalated to the point that Brown went after the woman, who was holding their 3-month-old son, and attempted to smash the pizza pocket in her face.

In doing so, scalding hot cheese oozed out of the pizza pocket and dripped on to their infant, causing redness and blisters to his neck. Brown grabbed his from the woman and slapped her twice before she was able to get the baby back and call police.

Brown, who was already wanted for not registering as a sex offender, was charged with injury to a child.

Speaking of food related burns, the worst one I ever experienced was after biting into a piece of pizza fresh from the oven and having the entire topping slide off in my teeth. It left me with a goatee made from a layer of melted cheese, adhered to my chin by a mixture of scalding hot tomato sauce and my salty tears.…

Mother Accused Of Cooking Baby In Microwave

June 22, 2011 at 8:58 am by  

Sacremento, CA — I was wondering when we would get another one of these stories. Police have arrested a 29-year-old woman, accusing her of killing her 6-week-old infant by cooking her in a microwave.

On Tuesday, Ka Yang was taken into custody and charged with one count of murder and one count of assault leading to the death of a child under age 8. These charges come after a three-month investigation into the death of her daughter, Mirabelle Thao-Lo. The baby was found dead in her home with “extensive thermal injuries” on March 17.

Yan initially claimed her daughter’s death was caused by a seizure, some saying they heard she had accidentally dropped the baby. But early on it was apparent the infant had suffered horrendous burns and investigators suspected all along it was caused by the microwave.

“She had some really deep tissue burns, fourth-degree burns. It was probably the worst case I’ve seen,” said Sacramento County Coroner’s Office spokesman Ed Smith.

It took three months for them to file formal charges because they wanted to compare the infant’s injuries with injuries suffered by other infants whose parents treated them like a Hot Pocket, including:

– The 1999 death of 5-week-old Joseph Lewis Martinez in Virginia.…

Dayton, OH — It took six years and three trials, but a second jury has found 31-year-old China Arnold guilty of cooking her 28-day-old infant to death in a microwave oven.

Arnold was accused of cooking Paris Talley in a microwave back in 2005. At the time of the incident, Arnold lived with her children and her boyfriend, Terrell Talley. Prosecutors said that Arnold placed Paris into the microwave after arguing with Talley over the baby’s paternity. Medical experts testified that Paris was probably in the microwave for more than two minutes. “She died because she was overheated,” said Dr. Marcella Fierro, retired chief medical examiner for Virginia. “She was cooked.”

Her first trial ended three years later in 2008 after a judge declared a mistrial when a 5-year-old boy came forward after the defense had rested their case. The boy stated he had seen another child place the infant in the microwave. It would later be determined the boy wasn’t even at the housing complex that day.

Her second trial ended later that year, a jury finding her guilty but unable to determine if she should get life or death.…

Hephzibah, GA — About six months ago, 91-year-old Dorothy Lockwood demanded that her 21-year-old grandson, Theodore Lockett, pack his crap and move out. At about 10:00 Saturday night, police say Lockett returned to his elderly grandmother’s home, confronted her in the living room, and proceeded to beat the life out of her with a glass coffee table. After bashing the woman in the head several times, Lockett reportedly called his mother and told her that he had just killed his grandma and she was next on his list. He then allegedly grabbed a microwave oven and assaulted Dorothy again, striking her repeatedly with the appliance. When police arrived on scene, Lockett was found inside the home and was arrested without incident. Also inside the home, a bedridden relative for whom Lockwood was caring for – she was unharmed. Dorothy died of her injuries early Sunday morning. According to Richmond County sheriff’s Sgt. Daniel C. Carrier, authorities are unsure why Lockett flew into such a rage – he has been treated at a behavioral health facility, but has no known psychiatric diagnosis.…

Plattsmouth, Neb – Here’s a nasty one. James Cook, 6, was playing hide-and-seek with his 9-year-old sister at his families home in Plattsmouth, Nebraska. James decided to hide in an older model microwave that the family had left outside to be taken to the dump with some other items. The microwave was on it’s back; door up. The older, Sharp brand microwave is 15 inches wide by 10 inches high by 12 inches deep. Once the door shut, he was unable to open it.

After about an hour of looking for her older brother in the 91 degree weather, his sister alerted the family that she could not locate him. An hour after that, the family finally found James who had already suffocated to death.

So, do any of you remember a time you played hide-and-go-seek and you found the perfect spot? A spot that no one would ever find you in?…
