Dallas “mom” ELIZABETH ESCALONA who beat 2 year old daughter and super- glued her hands to wall gets 99 years behind bars.

The judge described his decision as a necessary punishment for a brutal, shocking attack. State District Judge Larry Mitchell pronounced the sentence at the end of a five-day hearing .

"On Sept. 7, 2011, you savagely beat your child to the edge of death," Mitchell said. "For this you must be punished."

The savage beating left Jocelyn Cedillo in a coma for a couple of days.

Escalona's other children told law enforcement their mother attacked Jocelyn due to potty training issues.

Copse say she kicked her daughter in the stomach, beat her with a milk jug, then super-glued he hands to an apartment wall.

Doctors testified Jocelyn suffered bleeding in her brain, a fractured rib, multiple bruises and bite marks.

Skin had been torn off her hands as medical examiners found glue residue and white paint chips from the apartment wall.

Escalona pleaded guilty in July to one count of felony injury to a child.

The judge said Escalona might be eligible to apply for parole in 30 years.
