Father on Trial for Child’s Faith Healing Death

The father of an 11 year-old girl is on trial for the death of his daughter because he attempted faith-healing instead of seeking medical help for the girl. The man faces the charge of second-degree reckless homicide for the death of his daughter.

The girl that died had undiagnosed diabetes and her condition deteriorated over the last few days she was alive. She died as her parents and several others surrounded her bed chanting prayers and asking for God to heal the girl.

Medical help from professionals was sought only after the girl had stopped breathing.  The man’s wife has already been convicted of the same charge.
