DALLAS A Dallas woman who admitted to beating her 2-year-old daughter and gluing her hands to a wall because of potty training problems is expected to testify at her sentencing hearing.

Prosecutors are seeking a 45-year prison sentence for Elizabeth Escalona who pleaded guilty in July to felony injury to a child.

Police say the 23-year-old mother lost her temper and attacked Jocelyn Cedillo in September 2011. She is set to address the court in her own defense Wednesday.

Police records show that Escalona s other children told authorities she kicked Jocelyn in the stomach and hit her with a jug of milk. The other children said Escalona then glued Jocelyn s hands to the wall.

Escalona s mother testified Monday that her daughter is not a monster and that she deserves probation.
