Elizabeth Escalona, Texas mom who beat, glued kid's hands to wall, faces life term
Escalona pleaded guilty July 12 to injury to a child. The young mother is scheduled to be sentenced Monday.
Her daughter was in a coma for two days after the Sept. 7, 2011, incident. The girl and her siblings have since been taken into state custody. Police records show the toddler's siblings told investigators their mother kicked the girl in the stomach repeatedly and hit her with various objects before gluing her hands to the wall. She was in a hospital for a week.
Dallas police say Escalona was mad about potty training problems.
