When Arnold woke up to get her other kids ready for school, Talley said he went to wake the baby up, but saw a red burn mark on her face.
“She was cold,” Talley said. “Her body was cold and stiff.”
They took the baby to the Children’s Medical Center. Talley said he demanded to know what happened “cause she was the last one there with my baby all night.”
Arnold responded on at least two occasions “I killed my baby,” Talley said.
Talley said that Arnold told him several times that if he hadn’t cheated on her, his baby would still be alive.
An emergency room physician on duty when China Arnold brought her baby to Children’s Medical Center testified Thursday that he was shocked when Arnold expressed surprise that her baby had been burned.
Dr. William Matre said he immediately saw the baby had visible burns on her face, trunk and limbs. But when he asked Arnold about the burns, Arnold responded with a question: my baby has been burned?
