Texas woman sentenced to 75 years in prison for ‘sadistic torture’ of another woman

A Wylie, Texas, woman will spend the next 75 years behind bars after she was found guilty of the sadistic torture of a young woman, which included things like having boiling water poured on her, food restriction, no communication with the outside world and not being able to get medical treatment.

Collin County District Attorney Greg Willis announced the sentencing Tuesday of 37-year-old Alicia Calderon, after she was sentenced to 75 years for first-degree aggravated assault with a deadly weapon causing serious bodily injury to a household member.

“Calderon tricked the victim into living with her, and then controlled her with unthinkable torture,” Willis said. “She severely burned the victim’s arms, chest, and back by pouring a pot of boiling water on her. She also deprived her of food, locked her in a dog crate, and cut off her communication to the outside world.”

When it was time for the judge to determine the punishment, prosecutors revealed that Calderon spent $78,000 of the elderly woman’s recently received inheritance within three months. She had also been cashing the elderly woman’s social security checks for years.

The money was spent on things like a party rental place, vehicle rims and tattoos.

“We hope and pray this jury’s sentence will allow the victim to further heal from all the deep physical and emotional wounds inflicted by this defendant,” Willis said.
