DALLAS (October 8, 2012)---Elizabeth Escalona, who admitted that she beat her 2-year-old daughter and glued the girl’s hands to a wall is to be sentenced Monday.
Escalona pleaded guilty July 12 to injury to a child.
She could be sentenced to as much as life in prison.
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.
The toddler was in a hospital for a week.
Dallas police say Escalona was mad about potty training problems.
