Mom glued daughter's hands to wall!
A two-year-old girl is in critical condition in the hospital and her mother is charged with torturing her.
Dallas police said the abuse started with a frantic call from 22-year-old Elizabeth Escalona to her mother, saying something was wrong with her two year old daughter, Joselyn Cedillo.
By the time the grandma arrived the little girl was unresponsive.
The child had broken bones, bruises and head injuries.
“We just know we picked up the baby and she was hurt," the child's aunt said.
Police say Escalona dragged her daughter by her feet from the kitchen area to another part of the apartment. She then glued her child’s hands and stuck them to the wall until they bled. She then allegedly hit the girl in the stomach with a jug of milk, kicked her in the stomach and beat her with a shoe and a belt, all because she didn't go to the bathroom in time.
“Yeah she was extremely bruised," the aunt said. "She had a head concussion, she had a broken leg and broken ribs. We don't know how it happened, but she was covered in bruises."
Many people say they'd seen Escalona inflict pain on the child in the past.
The aunt said that the girl is spoiled and is treated good! REALLY? I don't spoil my children that way!
Escalona was taken under arrest for injury to a child. Child Protective Services has taken custody of Joselyn and three other siblings.
