For days the headline has been that Elizabeth Escalona had glued the hands of her two year old daughter to the wall, but she also glued the little girls eyes shut. She beat her to the brink of death bruising her from head to foot with a “milk jug,” tearing hair from her scalp, breaking a hip, causing bleeding from the brain, and biting her daughter’s body. A judge sentenced her to 99 years in prison.
Escalona took the stand, pleading for a second chance – said she “deserved” a second chance. After all, she had a fight with her boyfriend the day she brutalized daughter, Jocelynn Cedillo, who survived after awaking from a two day coma. Escalona has 5 children according to this article. She will spend at least 30 years in prison before becoming eligible for parole. May God provide a loving home for the little girl and her siblings. Photo Credit: Hispanically Speaking News
