Mom Admits Gluing Daughter's Hands to Wall

A Texas mom admitted to gluing her daughter’s hands to the wall because she couldn't' use the potty.

Elizabeth Escalona, who daughter was in a coma for two days following the incident, pleaded guilty to injuring her 2-year-old daughter on Sept 7.

The Dallas Morning News said Escalona yelled to reporters: “Only God can judge me. That’s all I gotta say.”

The girl and her siblings were taken into custody.

Police records show that 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.
