ALBANY, Ore. — An Albany couple has been convicted of manslaughter in the faith-healing death of their 12-year-old daughter who had diabetes.
KEZI reports a Linn County jury returned the verdict Monday evening against Wenona and Travis Rossiter.
Prosecutors said they were negligent in the death of their daughter Syble who died in 2013 from a complication from her disease, diabetic ketoacidosis.
The Rossiters said they thought their daughter had the flu, which is why they did not take her to a doctor.
The state presented testimony that the Rossiters belong to the Church of the First Born in Brownsville, a group that believes in faith-healing.
The couple will be sentenced on Dec. 19.
