Dallas mother glued 2-yr-old daughter's hands to wall

DALLAS (AP) - A Texas woman has pleaded guilty to injury to a child, acknowledging she beat her 2-year-old daughter and glued the girl's hands to a wall. 

Leaving a Dallas courtroom Thursday, Elizabeth Escalona told reporters, "Only God can judge me. That's all I gotta say." 

Her daughter was in a coma for two days after the Sept. 7 incident. The girl and her siblings were then taken into state custody. 

The Dallas Morning News (http://bit.ly/Nacvo6) reports that 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. 

Dallas police say Escalona was mad about potty training problems. 

Escalona faces up to life in prison. Sentencing is set for Sept. 10.
