Mum faces life after gluing girl (2) to wall

A DALLAS woman who admitted beating her two-year-old daughter and gluing her hands to a wall is facing life in prison.

Elizabeth Escalona, who pleaded guilty in July to injuring a child, was due to be sentenced yesterday.

Her daughter was in a coma for two days after the incident in September last year. The girl and her siblings have since been taken into state custody.

The siblings said their mother kicked the girl in the stomach and hit her with various objects before gluing her to the wall.

Dallas police said Escalona was angry about potty training problems.
