2nd Child of PA. Couple Dies After Only Praying

posted on April 24, 2013

“A couple serving probation for the 2009 death of their toddler after they turned to prayer instead of a doctor could face new charges now that another son has died,” reports Michael Robinkam and Marcyclaire Dale for the Associated Press. The parents, Herbert and Catherine Schaible, belong to a fundamentalist Christian church that emphasizes faith healing. Myrthi Jayaraman, the couple’s defense attorney, said, “Nobody argues that these aren’t very loving, nurturing parents. Whether their religion had anything to do with the death of their baby, we don’t know.”
