China Arnold was convicted of murder for cooking her 28-day-old daughter in a microwave in August 2005.
The 33-year-old has already been tried three times, but her attorney Christopher Thompson contends there were multiple errors in Arnold's latest trial, which is why he is calling for a new trial without death penalty specifications.
On Monday night, HLN’s Dr. Drew interviewed Arnold’s former attorney Jon Paul Rion who talked about his perception of the convicted murderer.

It just makes no sense she would do something like this.”
