Pennsylvania Couple Allows Second Son to Die Without Medical Care, May Face New Charges

by at . Comments

Herbert and Catherine Schaible - a couple serving probation for the 2009 death of their two-year old son - may face new charges this week after they allowed a second child to pass away without medical care.

The Schaibles belong to a fundamentalist Christian church that believes solely in faith healing.

As a result, they lost 8-month-old Brandon last week after a multi-day battle with diarrhea and breathing difficulties that was never addressed by a doctor.

Four years ago, another untreated son passed away from bacterial pneumonia.

On 10 years' probation for that incident, the couple may now face new charges because The Associated Press reports that terms of that probation included mandatory medical assistance for all future kids.

"There are way more questions than answers at this point. We haven't seen the autopsy report. We don't know the cause of death of this child," said Catherine's attorney, Mythri Jayaraman.

The lawyer went on to say "Mr. and Mrs. Schaible are distraught, they are grieving, they are tremendously sad about the loss of their most recent baby."

In 2009, a jury convicted the Schaibles of involuntary manslaughter after the death of Kent, 2.

The boy's symptoms at the time of his passing included coughing, congestion, crankiness and a loss of appetite.

Similar to their actions back then, the Schaibles told investigators in regard to Brandon's recent death that they prayed to God to make their son well instead of providing him with any medical treatment.

You need a license to drive a car, be a hairdresser or sell food from a truck. But any dangerously delusional nutjob with a working set of reproductive organs can create a precious life. Can't we eliminate these "parents" before more of their children suffer and die?

RELIGION? When are people going to come to the reality that religion is a weak trait of humans and is nothing but fiction. They should treat these two jackasses harshly and punish them as if they murdered them in cold blood.

How about instead of probation this time, there's a removal of reproductive organs?
