    Jurors Friday convicted a tearful Ka Yang of first-degree murder in Sacramento Superior Court in the microwave oven killing of her infant daughter in March 2011.

    Jurors rejected arguments that the Sacramento-area woman killed her child while in the clutches of an epileptic episode.

    Yang, 34, a married mother of four including 2-month-old Mirabelle Thao-Lo, placed the infant in a microwave in the kitchen of her family’s Sacramento-area home on March 17, 2011. Pathologists in proceedings leading up to trial said the child suffered burns over 60 percent over her body including radiation burns that penetrated her internal organs.

    At trial, defense counsel Linda Parisi argued that Yang’s longstanding battle with epilepsy was responsible for Mirabelle’s death. Yang, Parisi and family members said, was in the midst of a seizure when she unwittingly placed her child in the appliance.

    On Friday, before Sacramento Superior Court Judge Steve White, jurors found Yang guilty of murder and a second count of assault on a child causing great bodily injury leading to death. The panel returned its verdict after a single day of deliberation.

    After the verdict, Parisi and Yang family members, through a spokesman, expressed dismay at the decision.

    “I’m very disappointed. I respect (jurors’) commitment to justice, but I believe justice was not served,” Parisi told reporters. “Ms. Yang suffers from epilepsy. She had an epileptic seizure. It was not deliberate conduct.”

    Lao Paochoua Thao, a Yang family spokesman, described Yang as a “gentle, nice woman” who would not have intentionally harmed her child.

    Thao said Yang’s three surviving sons are staying with family members.

    “She didn’t know what she was doing,” Thao said. “Her real mind was out of reality.”

    Sentencing before Judge White is set for Dec. 18.

    The very definition of epilepsy commands the brain to either a tonic/clonic formerly known as grand mal seizure, petit mal formerly absence seizures and psychomotor seizures. None of these will allow an individual to conduct the neurologically complex fine motor skill of turning on a micro wave oven...period!! You are unconscious when in the throes of a seizure, you cannot commit this kind of activity during a seizure. The most absurd defense one can muster. Dissociative disorder may be more believable, but not epilepsy.

    90% of the male judges in the US (100% in Utah) would still let her go, because she has 3 more kids to take care of.

    for real...I would've guessed her best bet might've been an insanity plea? I'm not a defense attorney or anything but geesh, really? Epileptic seizure?!
