Couple Who Believed in Faith Healing Charged After Newborn Dies

The parents of a young baby who died shortly after birth earlier this year have been charged with murder.

The couple are followers of a religion that doesn’t believe in modern medicine, instead thinking that prayer and anointing the sick with oils will cure them of ailments.

Sadly, authorities claim it was this thinking that caused their newborn daughter her life, and had they sought medical treatment she may still be alive.
