Mom accused of killing baby in microwave

NEED TO KNOW
  • Ka Yang, 29, accused of killing 6-week-old baby
  • Yang’s lawyers claim Yang suffered from a seizure, blacked out, didn't know what she had done

A trial date will be set later this month for a Sacramento mother who is accused of killing her 6-week-old daughter by reportedly putting her in a microwave oven.

Ka Yang, 29, was taken into custody three months after her baby, Mirabelle Thao-Lo, was found dead on March 17.

Yang’s lawyers claim that Yang suffered from a seizure, blacked out, and didn't know what she had done.

Child welfare workers have since removed Yang's three other children, who are all under age 7, from her home.

Dr. Drew and his guests discuss the case and whether she has a legitimate medical defense.

Watch Dr. Drew weeknights at 9 ET and follow the show on Twitter @DrDrewHLN.
