- Kara Neumann case
The Kara Neumann case was an incident in which parents of a sick child refused to treat her with anything other than prayer, resulting in the child's death. The 11-year-old child, Madeline Kara Neumann, of Weston, Wisconsin, died of undiagnosed diabetes on March 23, 2008 after Kara's parents, Leilani and Dale Neumann knelt in prayer beside their dying daughter instead of seeking medical help. The parents were charged with second-degree reckless homicide by the Marathon County District Attorney.
Dale and Leilani Neumann were convicted by jury of second-degree reckless homicide on May 22, 2009 and August 1, 2009, respectively.  They faced sentences of up to 25 years in prison. Their attorneys said they would appeal the verdicts.
On October 6, 2009 both parents were sentenced to 10 years of probation, with 6 months jail time stayed pending appeal.
