Was Father's Conviction in "Death by Prayer" Case Just?

A Wisconsin father whose sick daughter died after he chose to pray instead of seek medical attention was found guilty of second-degree reckless homicide yesterday.

Dale Neuman, 47, convened a prayer meeting for his eleven-year-old daughter, who suffered from diabetes, when she became so ill she could no longer eat or speak. Without medical attention the girl passed away on the floor of their home.

Neuman's wife was also found guilty of the same charge.
