Microwaved Babies In The News

I found not one, but two microwaved baby cases awaiting judicial resolution:
May. 23, 2007. GALVESTON, Texas - A baby girl was released from a hospital 11 days after police say she was burned in a motel microwave oven. The infant's mother blamed the devil for what happened, saying Satan compelled her husband to put the baby in the microwave.
The jury's still deliberating.
January 28, 2008. DAYTON, Ohio (AP) -- Jury selection began Monday in the trial of a woman accused of killing her 1-month-old daughter by burning the child in a microwave oven.
The judge declared a mistrial, but ordered a new trial to be scheduled.

Obviously this can't be the parents' fault. They're just unhinged. I blame the manufacturers!

Microwaves ought to come with infant detectors.
Or maybe all babies could be installed with microwave deflectors.
