    Sounds like another case of cruel and inhumane punishment inflicted by a caretaker who had no compassion and empathy. Poor little one should have been with someone who truly cared about her.

    Nine days before she was arrested she posted this quote on her facebook:
    "Without my children tomorrow wouldn't be worth the wait and yesterday wouldn't be worth remembering."

    A 24-year-old Apple Valley woman convicted of killing her boyfriend’s 2-year-old daughter by forcing her to ingest chili powder was sentenced Monday to 15 years to life in prison...

    Amanda Sorensen was convicted Nov. 3 of second-degree murder in the death of toddler Joileen Garcia, who suffered a seizure after being force-fed chili powder as a disciplinary measure for lying about defecating in her pants, according to a San Bernardino County Probation Department officer’s report...

    Sorensen said she did not see how much powder actually went into the toddler’s mouth, “but knew it was a lot because the bottle was light,” the report stated. “During the struggle, the victim turned her head to the side and tried to spit out the powder; however, the defendant forced her hand over the victim’s mouth and pulled the victim’s head back against her stomach,” according to the report. Sorensen repeatedly ordered the toddler to, “Swallow it!” the report said. The moments that followed describe a response to a medical emergency.
