Elizabeth Escalona, a Dallas woman in a horrifying act super-glued her 2-year-old daughter's hands to a wall! That wasn’t all, she went on to hit her 2 year old to an extent that she experienced bleeding on her brain, a doctor confirmed during the mother's life sentence hearing.
Elizabeth after pleading guilty in July to attacking her daughter, Jocelyn Cedillo, last September,faces up to life in prison.
According to police officials the 23-year-old mother hit the toddler due to potty training problems.
Jocelyn was hospitalized for about a week with wounds that included, bleeding on her brain, a fractured rib and other ruthless bruises.
In a videotaped interview with Dallas Police Abel Lopez after the attack, Escalona claimed again and again: "I'm taking the blame." Lopez mentioned, "She never really asked" about Jocelyn's condition, I had to tell her."
Jocelyn’s grandmother, Ofelia Escalona said she came over after her daughter called her.
She said she could see something wrong in her daughter's face."I had my daughter in front of me, but she was not all there," said Ofelia Escalona said.
She picked Jocelyn up off the floor, ran with the girl to her car, and told her son to take them to the hospital, but Jocelyn by then had started talking and asking for food, making her grandmother believe that she didn't need to go to the emergency room and therefore she told her son to turn around."I made a horrible mistake," Ofelia Escalona said.
Ofelia is now taking care of her daughter's five children, including a baby born this year.
Escalona told the reporters from Dallas Morning News at the end of the hearing, “Only God can judge me!”
