WAUSAU, Wis. (AP) -- Appeals judges are recommending the Wisconsin Supreme Court hear the case of a Wisconsin couple convicted of reckless homicide in the 2008 death of their daughter.
Dale and Leilani Neumann prayed for their daughter's recovery instead of getting medical help for complications of undiagnosed diabetes. The Neumanns were convicted in separate trials in 2009. The Neumanns argued their actions regarding their 11-year-old daughter, Madeline, were permitted under Wisconsin law.
In a recommendation released Tuesday, the appeals court in Wausau says that since the case is unique in Wisconsin, it would be appropriate for the Supreme Court to hear it.
The Neumanns were sentenced to six months in jail and 10 years of probation. The Wausau Daily Herald says the jail terms were delayed pending their appeals.
