Mother Glues Toddler’s Hands to Wall and Beat Her Over Potty Training Issue
DALLAS, TX (KTLA) — A 23-year-old woman pleaded guilty Thursday to brutally beating her 2-year old daughter over a potty training issue.
The incident happened back in September at the family apartment in 9000 block of Timberline Drive, according to The Dallas Morning News.
Prosecutors say Elizabeth Escalona glued the little girl’s hands to a wall and then beat her into a coma.
Escalona, repeatedly kicked the girl in the stomach and hit her with various objects, including a jug of milk, a belt and a shoe, police records show.
The 2-year-old girl was later found unresponsive by her grandmother.
Police records indicate glue and paint were stuck to the girl’s palms, with skin torn away in places.
The young girl had broken bones, brain swelling, swollen intestines and extensive bruising after the incident, according to the Morning News.
The newspaper said the same day of the incident she posted Why does God put obstacles in my life? on her Facebook page.
Escalona faces life in prison when she is sentenced in September.
I have no comment, and only God can judge me, she told the newspaper outside court.
Thats all I gotta say.
