MADISON (AP) — The Wisconsin Supreme Court will hear the case of a Weston couple who prayed while their 11-year-old daughter died of undiagnosed diabetes in their home.

In 2009, separate juries convicted Dale and Leilani Neumann of second-degree reckless homicide for not seeking medical help for their daughter, Kara.

The couple was sentenced to six months in jail and 10 years on probation.

The Neumanns appealed, arguing their actions were allowed under the state’s faith-healing law.

Dale Neumann’s attorney, Steven Miller, says although there was a death, the
girl’s parents didn’t mean any harm.
